An Unwanted Surprise for California Title Insurance Holders

Homeowners in California with estate plans have historically transferred title to their property to the trustees of their planning entities. This has been the practice in the Golden State since the first days of trust writing and through to the days of limited liability companies, simply because it is the most effective method for making sure that their homes do not have to pass through probate following California homeowners deaths. Simply stated, a home held in trust is not included in the deceased's probate estate.
