Personal Trusts

Trust Key Means Believe Or Faith.Personal trusts are growing in popularity more and more everyday. Trusts are a good way to make sure your loved ones are able to get to any assets in case of death or incapacity. They are also a safe place to put any assets to make sure you remain in control of them in any unfortunate events.

Most people have heard of a trust, but they might not be exactly sure of what it is. A living trust is a trust that operates while you are still alive and becomes active when it is signed as assets are moved into it. This differs from a testamentary trust, which only becomes effective after a death. A trust is a legal arrangement that in which you, the grantor, place property in a trust that will benefit one or more beneficiaries. An attorney draws up the trust and you appoint a trustee to manage the assets in the trust. A trust can range from simple to complex, and have one or more trustees and beneficiaries depending on the purpose.

The biggest problem that people make when creating a trust is not funding it. Funding a trust simply means transferring assets from you to the trust. To do this, you have to physically change the name on the titles from your name, or joint names if you are married, to the name of the trust. Once there are assets in the trust, whoever is named the trustee controls them. In the event of a death, any assets that were not transferred into the trust will go into probate, which can be a costly and time consuming court process. While you are still living with a living trust, you can still buy and sell property as before.
