A: You can put real property from another state into a California trust. However, you will need to record a new deed with the county recorder's office where the property is located. This deed must show that you have transferred the property into the trust. The county recorder's website will have instructions on recording a deed, but I would recommend consulting with an attorney to make sure that you're doing everything correctly.

A: A grant deed in the name of your California trust mus be recorded in the appropriate county in WV. You may, but do not have to, use a WV local attorney for the transfer.
