The attorney is signing in his capacity as trustee of the trust so he is not personally responsible the trust is. If you had to pursue the trust for payment you would name the attorney as trustee as defendant in a collection suit to obtain a judgment against the trust.
No. There is no law regarding the size of a deposit. There are quite a few factors that go into buying a home and identifying the deposit amount. Speak with your realtor or speak with a real estate attorney. Many attorneys (my firm included) like to speak to real estate clients early in the process...Read more »

If the real property is just deeded to you, then you take the tract subject to whatever encumbrances are on it. But as long as you do not assume or guarantee any debts on the plot, then those encumbrances are only against the land and are not your personal obligation. However any liens, taxes,...Read more »
If you were awarded the home in the divorce, then you would be the sole owner. If she was awarded the home in the divorce, then her estate is now the sole owner.

A new, potential listing agent has indicated it would be unlikely to sell it at such an exorbitant price and... Read more »
I live in my fathers house. He moved to NC. I've been here 5 years+. He was paying the mortgage and insurance until he passed. Now, because I live here is it fully my responsibility to pay these funds during probate? There are 4 heirs.
The answer depends on who is going to inherit the house. It is they who need to pay the carrying costs. If they don’t pay those expenses out of pocket the estate can advance them if the estate has the liquidity to do so, but eventually they get charged to whoever inherits the house.
My husband is concerned about a tax he says he will have to pay upon his parents death in order to inherit the real estate they are leaving him in their will. I live in North Carolina but have not had any experience with the inheritance of Real Estate and so have no idea what he is referring to and... Read more »

That is a common question. If your husband died, the house would pass through his estate. If he has a will that says you get all of his assets, you would get the house after the Probate process is complete. If he does not have a will, the house and all other assets will pass to his heirs at law....Read more »
