LITTLE People, Big World star Matt Roloff has taken a big step to retain control of his $4million family farm amid his feud with his sons over the property.

The US Sun can exclusively reveal that Little People, Big World’s patriarch has taken steps to retain control of the farm after his death.

In a bargain and sale deed obtained exclusively by The US Sun, Matt sold land from Matthew J. Roloff to Matt Roloff Living Trust on June 24, 2022 for a sale price of $0.

The properties are 15.68 acres, 16.60 acres, 91.56 acres and 19.97 acres for a total area of ​​143.81 acres.

The transfer of the acres to a trust came just weeks after he put 16 acres of the farm up for sale on May 12 for a whopping $4 million.

EXPERT OPINION

Beverly Hills attorney Adam Michael Sacks exclusively explained to The US Sun why the reality star would transfer the farm to a trust.

The attorney explained how the trust could come in handy amid Matt’s feud with his twin sons.

He said: “The Trust can make a plan to keep the property until he dies or give it to the children or give it to whoever. You have to do what the Trust says.

“If your father is not married and dies, his children can simply share the fortune. But if he makes a will, he can say, ‘I won’t leave my children anything.’” If he doesn’t want his children to have it and put it in a trust, the children can’t fight about it. It’s whatever trust says.

“If he didn’t have a will or trust, it would go to the next of kin. If he has a will, he does what the will says. When you set up a trust, you have to spell it.”

A trust could also protect Matt legally, as Michael explained: “This can be for liability reasons. If you’re a doctor and your patient sues for medical malpractice, if you have a multimillion-dollar house in your name, they can take it away from you. So you put the house in a trust.

“The Trust is a separate entity, it keeps it for you. If you lose a lawsuit, you cannot pursue the trust. It protects you from liability. The trust will own the property.”

feud for farm

In Little People, Big World, Matt has feuded with Zach over the farm after turning down his son’s offers on the property.

The rejection sparked a rift between the two, which Zach spoke about on the show.

He said: “The north side is the 30 acres that my mum and dad shared and the whole thing was weird, he’s starting to make excuses… suddenly my wife and I aren’t good enough to run the farm.

“If we don’t have the money, we don’t have the skills.”

The argument has further created divisions in the family as Zach decided to take a step back from his duties on the farm.

Zach and his wife, Tori, made the decision to move from their Oregon home to their new $1 million residence in Battle Ground, Washington.

JEREMY snubs

The TLC star’s twin brother Jeremy made a similar move when he bought his own farm with his wife Audrey.

Jeremy previously made an offer for the property, which Matt also declined.

Audrey wrote on Instagram around this time, saying that not buying the farm was “the death of a dream.”

Fans at one point suspected that Matt and his ex-wife Amy’s youngest son, Jacob, would take over the farm, as he is often photographed working there with his father.
