Many people have taken it upon themselves to hire an attorney to draft a revocable trust for them. The hope is that by drafting such a trust one of the benefits is to avoid probate upon death. The typical scenario is that the attorney will draft an unfunded trust and may at some point transfer real estate into the name of the trust for the individual. However, it is common for most people to transfer the remainder of their assets into the name of the trust in order for it to work properly. People who do not transfer assets such as bank accounts, vehicle titles, or other recreational items into the name of the trust may end up in probate after all. Consequently, it is vital that if you have obtained a revocable trust, you should re-title the assets into the name of the revocable trust.
