What is a Trust

A trust is a vehicle used to hold property. The most common assets in a trust are investments, real estate (residential, commercial and farmland), and sometimes partnerships or LLCs.

Trusts are established by someone who wants to establish control of their assets during their life and after they are deceased.


Trusts are used to protect your independence in the event of your incapacity and for estate and tax planning. But almost always the underlying desire is to protect the assets for the trust’s beneficiaries, those who will benefit from the trust once the grantor is gone.
