Wills & Living Trusts

A living trust grants the power over your estate to a successor trustee. The successor trustee manages your financial affairs according to your instructions for as long as necessary. Another advantage of a Living trust is that they may allow assets to be passed to heirs without going through the process of probate. Avoiding probate will normally save substantial costs (often estimated at 4%-8% or more of your estate's value), time, and maintain privacy (Court proceedings are public record. Family can be exposed to disgruntled heirs, and unscrupulous solicitors. Revocable living trusts are not public record. Your family can take care of your financial affairs privately). Both living trusts and wills can also be used to plan for unforeseen circumstances such as incapacity or disability, by giving discretionary powers to the trustee or executor of the estate.
