A: I believe this is your third question about your grant deeds. I suggest you go to a lawyer and get your situation handled properly rather than try to piece together various lawyers’ advice. But to answer your question, it is possible to transfer property from one trust to another, but not in all situations. For example, is the person who set up the trust (called a Settlor) still alive? Are the trusts revocable or irrevocable? There are too many unknowns for a lawyer to give a specific answer to your question. Sorry!
