I am repeating my post on this forum as per recommendation ~ I hope someone could help!

In trust law, would it be valid for a non-grantor to place property into the trust? Or re-stated, can only property owned by the grantor be used to fund the trust?

Also, can a beneficiary of a trust transfer property to a grantor to be placed into this trust?

If this is not the forum for this question, could someone suggest which forum would be more appropriate? Thank you!
