My mother just recently died, and she had a trust. What is a trust, and do I need to hire a probate attorney for me to sell the house?

A trust is an estate planning document used to dispose of one’s estate.   Its principal advantage over a regular will is avoiding probate, providing guardianship planning, privacy and quick and easier administration.

If there is a trust, and the home you want to sell is in the trust, you don’t need to go through probate.  The assigned trustee will be able to sign all the documents to sale the house.
