A Revocable Living Trust (Trust) is a legal document or “Living Entity” that allows an individual or couple to transfer ownership of real property and/or assets (such as a home, real estate, bank accounts, certificates of deposit, securities, life insurance, stocks, bonds, etc.) from personal ownership into the legal ownership of the trust. A Revocable Living Trust is just what the name implies, a document that is created during an individual or a couple’s life, but that can be changed or terminated at any time. A Trust allows you to decide who will receive your assets, how much they will receive, and when they receive it. A Trust allows you to choose your successor trustees, who your beneficiaries are and appoint guardians for any minor children.
Our Revocable Living Trust packages are state-specific and updated regularly. Read below to find out more about the 10 documents that are included in our Revocable Living Trust package.
Please note: if you own or mortgage a home(s) you need to transfer it into your trust. This is legally done through a document called a deed. We can prepare one for you (or if your best friend works at a title company you could try that too) but it is vital to make sure your home is properly transferred.
