Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
Here the property and bank accounts in the name of the LLC do not need to be transferred into the name of the trust.Since the LLC is owned by the trust you can leave it as it is.
The LLC is simply an asset of the trust and managed by the trustee.This allows the LLC to operate independently and buy and sell properties here and have the income/expenses flow through the LLC.
Unless there is a special need to have trust hold title here you can leave it as it is, the trust owns the LLC and any assets held by the LLC.
I do not see any need to transfer title to either the properties or bank accounts.Legally it is not necessary again unless you have a personal reason to do so.
