Atlanta, GA asked in Estate Planning and Real Estate Law for Georgia

Q: Good morning I have a question about my recent filings i had filed quit claim deeds and an executors deed.

But the attorneys are telling me that i filed it into a trust how do you file with placing it into a trust? Is there another system that we would have to go through? My client is wanting to sale her home but she has 11 siblings and her mother is the executor of the estate. The attorneys are stating that we filed it in a trust and the estate is not in a trust.
