Good afternoon Steven. First, let me tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your lady. I know this must be a very difficult time for you and I will certainly keep you in my prayers!

As to your question, could you provide me a bit more information? What kind of trust is this...revocable or irrevocable? Who set up this trust? For whose benefit was the trust established? Thanks.

Good afternoon Steven. I see you have not responded to my request for additional information. As I will not be available for the remaining of the evening, I am going to opt out so another expert can timely provide you the information you seek. Please do not respond to this post as it will only slow the process of such an expert picking up your question. Take care.

Hello, Steven. Let me see if I can assist you. Sorry for your loss. Are you a trustee of the trust? If you were a co-trustee, then the property stays in the trust and you maintain control. Hope that helps. Anything else, please reply. A positive rating is appreciated.
