Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
You need to go to county deed records and locate the deeds.You need to send a demand letter here to trustee for a copy of the trust here.This is very suspicious.The information they gave you that the trust was for gift purposes is totally wrong , this is reportable but not taxable by the giftor.I fear you have been taken advantage of.
You will want to locate a local real estate lawyer to review the deeds and the trust document if you can get it.You deserve some answers and you may need the local lawyer to fight for legal title here.
I would do this all without delay and you may have to sue for quiet title to the property through the courts.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again and the best here.
You could also use a local title company here to research the title and provide this to the lawyer as a starting point.It makes sense because there are a lot of red flags and questions in my mind that you may have been mislead.
