When you establish a Trust you must transfer your real estate into the Trust. Transferring your real estate to the trust is simply done with a quit claim deed.

Transferring the title to property you own to a family trust does not mean you relinquish control.

At that point the family trust becomes the owner of the property. As you (Trustee) control the trust you still control the real property.

As long as you control the trust you can transfer your real property out of the trust at any time. Banks will require real property be removed from the trust before they will give you a loan.
