This does not seem right, it was recorded, drawn up a attorney,

Not sure of the specifics of your situation but generally in a deed transferring real estate to a trust the grantee is listed as: Jane Doe, trustee for The Jane Doe Trust.

With deeds, you have to get everything right. Improperly deeding a property into a trust is going to be a problem, and it sounds like you have that issue here. I think a phone call to the attorney that prepared the trust and document deeding the property into it is in order.
