I want to sell a property that I had previously included in a trust around 10-12 years back. The trust hasn’t been amended after that at all. Now, I have to modify the trust since I will be selling off the property. But, I couldn’t find it anywhere, though I searched every possible corner. I’m afraid that I may have misplaced it. Does this mean that I can’t even continue with the sales process? I don’t know what to do. Can anyone help?

Yes, searching out the attorney can help you to locate a copy of the original documents. I would like to add that, in case that doesn’t work, you’ll need to go for Amendment and Restatement of your trust.

If the property is titled in your name, or as a trustee, then you’ll supposedly have no issues during selling. However, though you may not need it now, you’ll definitely need the original trust documents later on. Contact with the attorney who had drafted the trust for you, and in all probability, he’ll have a copy of the original trust.
