NEVER file the trust. Trusts are private documents. Some states require you to file a Memorandum of Trust, but you DO NOT FILE THE TRUST!
If you plan to use land trusts, for heavens sake spend the money to do it right: 1) hire a lawyer (good luck) 2) buy Bronchick’s course, here or at legalwiz.com
They are much too complicated and this is WAY too important for you to get all the answers you need here or on any board.
Most states have a statute that allows for a NON-Sale deed to be filed without transfer fees, just a filing fee. But again, if you are going to do business in your state, learn the rules and the laws. You can’t expect someone to know your state’s law when you didn’t even say where you are from. And those of us not in your state wouldn’t know, or care.
