Create a New Hampshire Living Trust



Accidents can happen. After all, who besides geologists ever expected the Old Man in the Mountain to one day fall off? Certainly not the United States Mint, when they chose his granite profile to grace the back of the commemorative quarter in 2000. When it comes to planning for the future, you can cross your fingers and do your best, including developing a plan for your estate to the best of your ability. There are some tools to help you plan for your family and your successors, guaranteeing that they inherit the more, and that courts and the taxman inherit less. This legal tool is the living trust.



A New Hampshire living trust allows you to gather together, within one document, control of your significant assets. This type of trust is important if you want to make sure that your property is distributed easily and quickly. Living trusts not only, in most states, allow you to avoid the probate process, you can also develop a plan to handle assets in the event that you're suddenly disabled.

Once created, the trust, not you, owns your assets. This doesn't mean that you no longer have control of your assets. Since you, the grantor, will usually appoint yourself as the trust's initial trustee, you still have complete control of your property; you can transfer property out of or add property to the living trust.
