California is a community property state. In that respect, California differs from many other states.

California State FlagCalifornia Land Trust property is NOT subject to dower, community property, or other marital rights of Beneficiaries. This means instruments dealing with the title to property held in a trust do not be signed by both spouses. Only the Trustee of the Land Trust needs to sign them.

Think About This

California has over a 60% divorce rate. Land Trusts enable continued operation of a property in the midst of marital strife. This can be a real benefit to both parties.

Any property divisions will only apply to Beneficial Interests in the Land Trusts. The assets in the trusts are unaffected. The trusts then continue to generate income while the spouses argue over who gets what.
