 Benefits of a Realty Trust in California

The transfer of the real property is often a key concern in estate planning. Sometimes, however, two or more people may want to hold title to real property in a trust that controls how the property is to be distributed at death. This often happens when children inherit property from parents and want the property to stay in the family. In this situation, the family members can consider transferring the real property into a realty trust. This type of trust allows multiple homeowners to easily transfer co-owned property to intended beneficiaries while avoiding the probate process and deed recording.

Benefits of Putting Your Home into a Realty Trust

California law recognizes realty trusts.  Furthermore, a revocable or irrevocable trust can serve as the beneficiary of the realty trust. There are several benefits of putting real property into a realty trust in California. For example, putting real property into a trust that is co-owned by multiple people allows the parties to jointly decide the ultimate beneficiaries of the property. Upon the death of any of the co-trustees, the trust becomes irrevocable, assuring that the original designated beneficiaries will not be altered by the surviving co-trustees. Furthermore, this type of trust can allow the personal information of a beneficiary to remain confidential. Personal information of the beneficiary is not listed in public records. This provides a degree of anonymity to property ownership.

“It was important to keep our parent’s house in the family. After our mom died, we all decided to set up a realty trust to make sure the property would stay in the family.” F. Duncan
