Put Your Home Into a Trust for Homes First!
If you transfer your house to a living trust, it will not be part of your probate estate when you die. You can specify in the trust deed that the trustee is to transfer the house to your intended heir the day after you die. By contrast, it could take months, or even longer, to transfer title to the house if it passes under your will and a probate court takes jurisdiction over it.
We can help you stay in your house for your lifetime and then help others in the future through your generous donation to Homes First!
