Q: I created my trust 6 years ago and just purchased another piece of real estate. Do I need to do anything special to make sure the new property is part of my trust?

A: Yes you do! This is what we estate planning attorneys refer to as “trust funding”. In this case, you will need to make sure you sign and record a new grant deed showing your trust as the owner of the property! And remember, if you forget to do this, your beneficiaries might still end up in probate even though you had a trust!
