Why is a living trust important in NY

Will Vs Trust

A will is a legal document created to name certain assets and wishes of an individual after death. It can name beneficiaries, transfer assets. A will goes through probate after death to determine its authenticity and then execute the will according to what it says. It is only active after the person has passed away

A trust can be similar in many ways but it creates a fiduciary relationship to allow another individual to be responsible for handling assets on behalf of the beneficiaries. The Living trust is created during the lifetime of the individual, What makes the living trust so attractive is it allows for an easy transfer to the beneficiaries while many times avoiding probate which can be lengthy and expensive.

What are the benefits of a Living Trust in NY?

  1. A living trust gives a very high level of control. It allows you to determine, who, what, when, where and why and with proper planning with the help of an estate attorney can be done seamlessly
  1. A living trust saves time. Especially when compared to a will (or worse having no will at all) a living trust is a huge time saver. The probate process creates exposure for relatives to challenge the will which can disrupt the initial plans and also drags the process on and on.
  1. A living will can allow you to save money. In the state of New York, a Surrogate Court reviews the will and how assets will be distributed. Assets that are transferred through a living trust skip the NY Surrogate Courts, probate, and additional legal fees.
  1. If you are incapacitated due to a decline in the health of an injury a living trust allows your wishes to be carried out. A legally sound living trust is difficult to challenge or to be abused and your wishes as initially planned will be carried out both during your lifetime and after.
