In most cases where a home is in a trust, whether revocable or irrrevocable, you can get a regular homeowner insurance policy in your name. This will cover the home, your personal property, any additional structures and personal liability.  You add the trust as an additional insured to the policy.  There is no charge for this addition.

Check with your insurance agent or insurance company to review the coverages that you are seeking to be sure that the policy is properly written for your needs, and the needs of the trust. The attorney who helped set up the trust can also assist you in the writing of the insurance policy. There should be no problems with the handling of this insurance policy as long as you continue to live in the home. If you should move out the insurance will need to be changed.
