How Do I Transfer Property into a Trust?

Transferring property to a living trust can also be called “funding.” This means that you are naming another person as the beneficiary of your property and when you die, they will receive the property with all of the benefits and responsibilities. In order to do this successfully, you must fill out a trust transfer deed, or a grant deed.

Information on the trust transfer deed should include:

  • The description of the property being transferred
  • Your name
  • The name of your beneficiary
  • The signature of a notary public
  • The date of the transfer

You may also need to complete a Preliminary Change of Ownership Report which can be filled out online and submitted with your transfer deed. Except in the case of a refinance, the property will likely stay in the trust until you pass away.
