My 93 year old mother owns her home free and clear, upon her death it is to go into her living trust. Now she is not able to be on her own and she would like to deed the house to 2 of her children, how do we do that

Missouri

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Just the living trust when my dad was alive

Good morning and thank you for using JA.

All she needs to do is prepare and sign a quitclaim deed listing the two children as grantees.

Then the signed deed is recorded with the county recorder's office.

You can prepare one at the following link and print it out for execution:

MO QUITCLAIM DEED
