I borrowed about 90K from my mom to buy a rental house through my LLC. I filed a mortgage through the courthouse. (Different states). I make monthly payments automatically (4% interest). When she dies the remainder of the debt becomes part of my inheritance. She has multiple land contracts that will be divided between siblings. Plus real estate and cash. Trust set up.

Is there anything I need to do now? Anything that might bite me in the butt?

You indicate that the trust is set up. Is it funded, i.e., does it actually own the assets you list? It probably should, especially the real estate and land contracts. If your mother dies with those things in her own name, that is the sort of thing that can make probate a long drawn-out affair.

If not, she should discuss that with her lawyer who did the trust.
