One of the inaccurate notions that some people have regarding living trusts is the idea that they are only useful for people with extraordinary financial resources. In fact, this is not the case.
The primary appeal of living trusts is the fact that they can facilitate the future transfer of assets to your heirs outside of the probate process.
Why would anyone want to avoid probate?
This legal process can be time-consuming, and the heirs do not receive their inheritances until the probate court closes the estate. Probate can also be expensive, consuming perhaps 3% to 5% of the value of an estate or sometimes even more.
