Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
The deed controls and in a joint tenancy deed, when one party dies, the survivor instantly becomes the sole owner..
In order to put property into a trust, the owner has to actually have a deed prepared from them as the grantor over to the trust as the grantee..
So if the property was in the person's name when they died, the surviving owner now owns the entire property..
There is no change in taxes from parent to child..
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
