I’ve put a couple properties into land trusts so I guess that makes me an “expert”.
Write up your trust agreement, get your trustee lined up. Write up a quit claim deed – you as grantor deeding to the “123 Main Street Trust”. Get both documents notarized. Send the quit claim in to the clerk of the court along with the recording fee. You’re done.
Make sure you pay your trustee the yearly fee (I pay $50 yearly on each property) so no one can claim the trust is a sham. Good luck.
