A Deed of Assignment is used to transfer property owned by a grantor to a revocable living trust. It is important to ensure that the details of the property being transferred in clearly described.
This Deed of Assignment is used to transfer assets to and from your revocable living trust. If you fail to properly transfer assets to your living trust they will end up going through probate. This will result in a delay in the transfer of those assets to your loved ones as well as incur the associated costs of probate.
This Deed of Assignment is for use by someone who has made a shared living trust as opposed to someone who has made a single living trust. It can be used to transfer either separate or joint assets to and from the living trust.
This Deed of Assignment is a downloadable form. It comes complete with guidance instructions on how to fill in the form.
