Retitling property into the trust is a very important part of your estate plan. Without retitling the assets properly into the trust you will not be able to avoid probate if this is one of your goals. In addition if property is not titled correctly your estate plan may not function correctly. For example if you intend for a certain account to be distributed through the trust however it was still owned in joint name when you pass away that property will not be distributed pursuant to the trust and will instead pass directly to the joint owner of the account. We feel that the retitling of property is so important that we devoted an entire section of your estate planning to the retitling process.
