Created while you are alive, a revocable living trust lets you control the distribution of your estate. Ownership of your property and assets is transferred into the trust. You can serve as trustee or you can appoint another to serve as trustee. If you serve as trustee, you must appoint a successor to serve as trustee upon your death.
Properly drafted and executed, a revocable living trust can avoid probate and delays as the trust owns the assets not the deceased. Consult with your attorney and/or CPA before deciding a revocable living trust is the right choice for you.

Disadvantages of a Living Trust
Trustor: Creates the revocable living trust and transfers major assets into it. (A husband and wife can have a joint living trust or each can have their own living trust.)
Trustee: Manages the living trust's assets.
Beneficiary: Receives the assets of the living trust.
Initially the trustor, trustee and beneficiary are the same person(s).
