Good Evening. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. Please give me a moment as I type my answer to your question.
When real property is titled to a trust then the assets in the trust are used to pay all expenses associated with the home. You may seek reimbursement for any expenses you have paid out of pocket on behalf on the property. If you haven't started already save all receipts, invoices, or check registries that prove your expenses.
If there are no liquid assets in the trust name to pay the expenses then your in-laws are responsible for the expenses. Who is their Power of Attorney and who is the Trustee of the family trust?
The trust document itself will state who the real property will be devised to upon the death of your in-laws.
