Need Help Creating a Revocable Living Trust?

Call Our Alameda County Estate Planning Lawyer

A revocable living trust is a legal entity formed to hold and control assets. A person can place assets into the trust, and upon their passing, these assets are managed by successor trustee up to and through their final distribution. A revocable living trust is a private entity which requires no court involvement to manage. A revocable living trust greatly speeds the post-death distribution process at a substantially lower cost than probate. Revocable trusts are flexible documents that can be updated, amended and revoked during your lifetime.

Benefits of a revocable living trust include:

  • Easy to update throughout your lifetime
  • Cost of post-death distribution nearly 1/10th the cost of probate
  • Tax saving structure

Randick O’Dea Tooliatos Vermont & Sargent personally consult with our client as often as necessary to ensure that you understand the nature of this trust, including tax-related issues and amendment situations. Our personalized service is why our clients recommend us again and again to their friends and family.

How To Create a Revocable Trust

Creating a revocable trust requires an individual to do most of the work upfront so the distribution of your estate is obstacle free in the future. The process of creating a revocable trust includes the following steps:

  • Catalog all of your assets

  • Name your beneficiaries

  • Assign your trustees

  • Include any property on the trust

  • List your assets

  • Procure investment certificates

  • Include beneficiaries in your bank and insurance company

  • Retitle cars

  • Sign new deads

  • Establish a “pour-over” will that includes future assets to your trust.
