The living trust





A Living Trust is a Trust created during a person’s lifetime, whilst also taking effect during their lifetime.
  • It can be revocable meaning that the Settlor can change his/her mind and decide to take asset(s) out of the Trust at anytime he/she choose to, without any difficulty, or impediment. 
      
      
  • It can be irrevocable i.e. once the Trust is created and assets are transferred into it, those assets cannot be taken out of the Trust except as described in the Trust Deed. 
A Trustee under a Living Trust holds these assets and follows the Settlor’s instructions regarding the use of these assets during their lifetime and upon their demise.
  • The Settlor should consider the following factors before setting up a Living Trust:
a)Age
b)The size of his/her estate
c)The location(s) of his/her real estate holdings
 
BENEFITS OF A LIVING TRUST.
 
The Living Trust ensures that the Settlor’s assets are distributed to the chosen heirs under the defined terms and conditions, thereby preventing any disputes amongst the family.

It is the most cost effective tool for Estate Planning as it reduces the costs of Estate and Probate duties payable.

Beneficiaries will avoid the delays of processing letters of administration of estates because Trust assets are not part of assets for probate administration.

It ensures privacy of Settlor’s estate planning instructions.
