Deeds and living trusts
When a Brooklyn trusts and estates attorney helps you create a trust instrument, it is important for the attorney to make sure your trust is properly funded. Simply writing a trust instrument and stating that certain assets are held in the trust is not sufficient to actually transfer the assets into the trust. In order to transfer your home or other real estate into a revocable or irrevocable living trust, you must use a deed.
Requirements for a valid deed
A deed is a written instrument that is used to transfer ownership of real property from one owner to another. A deed must contain the names of the current owner, called the grantor, and the new owner, the grantee, as well as the legal description of the property. In addition, a deed must meet other requirements:
- In writing
- Signed by the grantor
- Recorded in the county where the property is located
As an experienced deeds lawyer in Brooklyn with significant knowledge of estate law, I help you as a grantor ensure that your property is properly deeded to the right beneficiaries during your lifetime, that your deeds are valid and that your trust is properly funded with the correct assets through the use of all necessary and appropriate documents. It is essential that deed transfers are done correctly to avoid tax consequences and other penalties.
