Mother created trust and out her home into it. She has since resigned and made me sole trustee. Do i have to re-title the ownership of the house
As long as the home was transferred via Deed, into the name of the currently serving Trustee of the Trust, the home should remain held by the currently acting Trustee of the Turst even though your mother resigned as Trustee. If your Trust document shows that you are the successor trustee, then if/when you need to transfer the home or sell it, the Title Company should accept a copy of the Trust showing you as successor Trustee as proof that you can sign the deed as Trustee on behalf of the trust. You might want to check the deed to show that it says that the Trustee is holding title to the home on behalf of the trust. In the deeds I draft I customarily include successor language so that a successor trustee is included.

Even though the trustees changed the trust name is the same. No need to retitle.
