A trust cannot exist or operate without assets. For assets to be part of a trust, they must first be transferred to the trustee (i.e. funding the trust). The importance of having a fully funded revocable living trust cannot be overemphasized. Assets that are not properly transferred to the trust may not avoid probate and may require other court action. At Ewin Lambourne Law, APC, we help our clients complete the funding of their trust.
