Funding the trust is the process of transferring ownership of your assets from you to your trust. To do this you will physically change the titles from your name to the name of the trust.
Transferring Real Estate
There are two steps to completing the transfer of a property into a trust.
1) Prepare a new deed for the property in the name of the trust
2) Record the new deed with the county recorder's office.
You can use our online deed prep service to prepare the new deed, the cost is $150.00 and typically takes 2-3 weeks. (Not available in NY)
Transferring Other Assets
Other types of assets may need to be updated and transferred into the living trust. Our comprehensive guide gives you step-by-step instructions for a wide array of assets. Included in the Funding Guide are the fillable forms you will need.
