The living revocable trust is the one used most often.
The benefits of a trust like this include: helping dodge probate, reduce estate taxation, and maintain asset management when the owner or initiator of the trust becomes incapacitated or dies.
Yes, technically trusts don't have official owners, but this description makes it much easier to understand. Today we are going to focus on establishing and using a living revocable trust, but first let's focus on the basic functions of trusts.
The Benefits of Trust of Different Types
A trust is a written agreement that details rules to be followed for properties being held for beneficiaries. The general reasons for setting up a trust are to establish asset protections, reduce or eliminate taxes, and prevent probate.
Trusts are places where you can essentially "stow away" property, give the asset held a new identity, and have them gain some special defenses in lieu of a transformation.
The one who initiates the trust may be referred to as a settlor, grantor, or trustor. The one that takes over or currently manages the property is referred to as a trustee, and those that will receive benefits from the property are called beneficiaries.
Irrevocable trusts offer ironclad asset protection because they cannot be revoked. Their disadvantage is that once you give away the property you cannot get it back. Revocable Trusts can be revoked so they are more flexible with a lesser degree of asset protection.
