M. D. Richar…, Home Buyer in Hyde Park, UT

can you purchase a property that is in trust?

Asked by M. D. Richards, Hyde Park, UT Fri Aug 24, 2012

I am interested in a property and I was told that the property is in trust, but it has been empty for years.

Help the community by answering this question:


Mr. Richards,

You can purchase a property in a trust the same as from an individual, the Trustee can sell it as permitted by the parties involved with the trust.

Yes you can. A lot of people put their properties in trusts.

Of course. Sometimes it can take a bit longer to negotiate and sometimes it's just like any other transaction
