Many people with assets wish to make the future transfer of those assets to family members or other intended beneficiaries as smooth as possible after their deaths. Perhaps based on experience with the death of parents or grandparents, a thoughtful person often wants to protect a spouse, children, business partner or charitable organization from unnecessary legal expenses and challenges when the time comes for transfer of their assets after death.
A revocable living trust offers such advantages. In order to establish a living trust, you will need to transfer ownership of your assets, such as your home, stocks, bonds, business interests and bank accounts, to a trust. By way of a revocable living trust, you can essentially transfer ownership of your assets while you are still live, yet retain control over them as long as you live.
