Everyone with assets should declare, while they are in a competent frame of mind, how these assets should be distributed upon their death. A will declares who an individual wants to receive the assets of their estate and who they want to act as the executor. However, with a will, the property of the estate will still have to be probated. Probate is a lengthy and costly process of transferring assets held in the name of the deceased, to those legally entitled to receive those assets upon death. By properly drafting a trust that transfers a person’s assets into the trust, a person will prevent probate. This will save substantial time and money for the heirs.
