My mother transferred her house to me by deed about 3 years ago. I think there was some confusion of her part as after reading up on it, this may only reduce the amount Massachusetts Medicaid can see for reimbursement of funds. We discussed it and decided to place the house into an irrevocable trust.
Before I consult an attorney, should this be an inter vivos or testamentary irrevocable trust? Does putting the house in trust disrupt the 3 year period the house was transferred to me by deed?
