What should I do if I decide to sell my house now?
Can she sign me a refund?
If I sell it in her name, would it be a lot of tax because she never lived in this House? Please help.
I think I may have made a big mistake.
Well, you may have made a mistake.
Read this article for our thoughts on transferring ownership of the family using the quitclaim deed)
But what we hope is that you will confuse the terms.
The whole purpose of building a living trust is to clarify what has happened to the property and to avoid many of the questions you have raised.
When you own the property in your own name, the surviving family members do not automatically acquire ownership of the house after your death.
Not only do they not acquire automatic ownership at home, but unless the will or other legal documents clearly state what should happen to the property, under national law, ownership can be divided in the combination of living spouses, children, other heirs or these heirs.
After your death, in the absence of key legal documents, even if there is a will, there is a right to transfer to these family members who normally have to go to the probate court, let the court authorize the transfer of the deceased to the new owner of the house.
We assume that you have established a living trust so that your heirs can avoid probate and be able to specify exactly who you want to own the house after your death.
Or maybe you want to specify who should handle family affairs in the event that you are incapacitated.
But a living trust is like an empty shopping bag.
It\'s just an empty bag if you don\'t fill it up.
So once you have established the life trust document, you have to transfer the assets to the Life Trust.
You may think that you have signed a deed of abandonment to your daughter, but we would like you to sign a deed of abandonment to transfer ownership of the house to your life Trust.
Nowadays, the Recorder of many local or county deed offices allows users to go online to find property tax package numbers and view documents on ownership of the house.
If you have a computer and internet, you can search the website of your county tape recorder office to see if you can find your property file.
Once you do the search, you should be able to find a copy of the 2012 deed.
This deed should be said that you convey the ownership of your house from your name to the name of your life Trust.
You should not worry when you find the documents and see the title of the house in the Life Trust.
Once the property is in your life trust, you can treat the house as your own.
For purposes of federal income tax, you may sell the house and treat the sale as your own;
At the very least, it\'s a way of working for the vast majority of homeowners who put their property into a living trust.
Many people forget to actively transfer ownership to their life Trust.
If they forget the last step, the title will remain in their name;
When they die, the property usually has to pass the probate court to transfer ownership of the house.
Unfortunately, if you do use a very declaratory deed to sign ownership of your daughter\'s house and she records that document, you will no longer have your house.
Your daughter will be the owner of the house now.
Yes, you can have her re-communicate the title to you and then you can sell the house.
In this case, however, we see a whole bunch of potential problems.
As far as the IRS is concerned, the IRS can claim that you haven\'t owned the house for two years in the last five years.
This may prevent you from getting a $250,000 exemption (
Up to $500,000 if you get married)
The federal government taxed profits from selling homes.
We discussed the issue of exemptions in detail in other columns.
Finally, we suspect that the 2012 deed you signed is to transfer ownership from your own name to the name of your living trust.
We don\'t understand why you experience the trouble of building a living trust and then transferring ownership of the house to your daughter.
But if you do, you worry about these two shortterm and long-
