Legal Question

Asked on: 6/20/13, 10:09 pm


My wife and I are purchasing a home and we would like to put it in our Living Trust. I failed to mention this to anyone at the beginning of the document creation process so I figured we would just wait until the escrow closes and look into taking care of it then.

However, we are now signing a paper titled “Vesting Worksheet” that gives the instructions “… ESCROW HOLDER IS INSTRUCTED TO REFLECT MY NAME AND VESTING AS FOLLOWS:” It then list options like “As Joint Tenants”, “As Community Property”, etc. and of course, “Other”.

Is this “Other” option a place that we could (and should) select and list our living trust?

Thank you.
