My two sisters and I are trustees and beneficiaries to two

Hello,My two sisters and I are trustees and beneficiaries to two trusts set up by my parents as part of their estate plan. A lawyer reviewed the trusts on our behalf and determined that there is a provision in the trusts to allow the properties in the trusts to be transferred our names now. He said that the only thing that we would need to do is sign the deeds to the properties. Here are our questions:1) By transferring the properties in our names will this help to thwart any potential challenges by a potential sibling (whom my father denies fathering) who may make claims to the properties?2) My sisters and I would like to have the ability to take a loan out against the properties for investment purposes. Are there any caveats/things that we should be aware to facilitate our financing process for the properties?3) Are there any negative tax implications to transferring the properties into our names?

I was recently appointed trustee of my mother and

I was recently appointed trustee of my mother and father-in-law's irrevocable trust. They declined themselves as trustees as did the bank. Now it may not be a grantors trust anymore. Should I file tax returns for the trust separately? And that the trust is to be passed on to my wife at the death of her parents, does this interrupt any inheritance tax plans? The trust value is well under inheritance limitations.

I want to setup a very basic trust fund kids.

I want to setup a very basic trust fund for my kids. Basically a brokerage account for my kids where they don't have direct access until they are 35 years of age or older (or earlier if they need a downpayment on a house for example). What are my best options? KISS Trust (I've heard mixed things)? (UTMA is not an option), I already have a 529 fund.
