Yes. Homeowners insurance can be used to cover a home owned by a trust. It happens all the time. A number of people put their money into living trusts so their children will not have to pay probate fees. It costs a whole lot less money to pay a lawyer to write a living trust that to represent someone in probate court. (Pay me now or pay me a lot more later. In a car regular oil changes are less expensive than engine overhauls.) Insurance companies are set up for it.

Can a homeowners policy cover a home owned by a trust?

How does homeowners insurance work in a living trust?

If a person has a living trust that allows them to live in the home for as long as they live, they would still be eligible for a homeowners policy. The policy should be in the name of the person living there and the trust name should be listed as an additional insured. This way the home is covered which is legally owned by the trust and the contents are protected as they are owned by the person living in the home. Both are protected by the liability coverage.

Will your homeowners insurance cover damages caused by a hit and run driver who smashes into your brick wall fence?

Yes, Your homeowners Insurance policy, (unless you have Fire Only) should respond to damages to your home from an automobile.Answeri am an insurance agent and if you have a hit and run such as that description and you do have a homeowners policy. it will be covered under the policy, you will have to pay your deductible and it will go onto your records as a loss but they will pay the damages that are above your deductible, now they will have to prove that it wasnt one your cars doing the damages so you can get a new brick wall and that it wasnt because your wall was old and just fell. and trust me they have their way of proving that.

There was no will. For property held in trust owned by three people one won't sign to sell. What can be done?

If the property is owned by a trust then you need to review the document that created the trust to determine how it can be sold. Generally, the trustee can sell the property but that authority must be granted in the trust document.Note that either the property is owned by a trust or it is owned by three people. You cannot have it both ways.If the property is owned by a trust then you need to review the document that created the trust to determine how it can be sold.

If you are deemed mentally incompetant by a dr will your life insurance pay out your policy to your family?

If it is a standard Life Insurance product, then that will have no bearing on whether or not it will pay. However, I would suggest transfering to joint ownership of the policy, so that the policy is owned by you and someone that you trust.


Can a trust insure a home?

It depends upon the underwriting rules of the insurer to which application is made. In general, though, a trust is a legal entity capable of holding title to a home, so it has the requisite insurable interest. Some insurers may refuse the issuance of a standard homeowners insurance policy; others will issue only a dwelling fire policy (non owner occupied policy that covers only the building).

Can a will supercede a trust?

You really should. The trust will contain only the items that you have placed in the trust, and you can also specify in the trust where personal items should go. Please remember to have your attorney transfer your home(s) and other real property to the trust; your attorney should do it so that you don't inadvertently trigger a taxable event. Anything that you own that is not in the trust (automobiles, bank accounts, etc.) will be handle by probate court in you do not have a will to cover all the possibilities. You should have a living will as well, and arrangements for durable power of attorney. I am not an attorney, but I have helped my mother in her estate planning.
