THE SUCCESSOR TRUSTEE OF MY MOTHERS TRUST HAS BEEN SO DIFFICULT AND I NEED TO KNOW WHAT DOES THE GRANT DEED IN MY NAME MEAN IN TERMS OF THE EQUITY AND THE HOUSE?
Family Law Attorney
A lawyer would have to revie the deed, the proposal, and all documents pertaining to it to give you an exact answer. It's probably worth your time and money to hire a lawyer to advise you as to your best course of action.
Ms. Johns can be reached at her Woodland Hills and San Diego offices at (866) 402-4038. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org and her office does offer free telephone consultations to Avvo askers. Ms. Johns is a lawyer although she is not your lawyer unless you have consulted with her and signed a fee or letter agreement confirming her representation of you. This Avvo response does not otherwise create a binding attorney client fee agreement. Ms. Johns and her employees are not tax or financial advisors and do not give tax or financial advice of any kind. For such advice, it is recommended that you consult with a tax or financial professional in that field.
I agree with Attorney Johns. You cannot get an answer without having the documents reviewed. If you are the owner of the house, it is hard to see how the trustee would be involved with it. An attorney can clarify your status after reviewing the paperwork.

I agree with my colleagues. You need to have a local attorney review your documentation to provide you with guidance. It would be impossible for a clear answer in this forum, we don't have the documents to review.
