Revocable Living Trust


Definition of "Revocable living trust"

Alfred Williams, Real Estate Agent La Rosa Realty LLC

Trust in which rights to make any changes therein are retained by the grantor. At the grantor's death all rights become irrevocable. This type of trust has several advantages: it can avoid probate, it prevents public disclosure of the assets of the trust, it can easily be revised or terminated, and it promotes continuity for the transfer of the estate. However, since the grantor retains ownership rights under this trust, the trust loses all of the income and estate tax advantages available under an irrevocable living trust.
