Hmmmm, let me guess, your line of work is setting up Trusts?

Looking back at this thread, I suspect I the OP was concealing assets for a reason. If not from creditors or courts, possibly, entitlement programs. Having the title in the name of a Living Trust doesn't hide the asset. Putting homes in Trusts create additional fees for borrowers, as either the Trust requires legal review by the lender or title must change, incurring additional recording. I've yet to have the person that recommends the Trust disclose this fact to these individuals, usually older adults on fixed incomes.
