Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts

A trust is a type of separate legal entity that can hold title to property for the benefit of one or more persons or entities. The person who sets up a trust is called a Grantor. The person or entity that controls the trust and is responsible for managing its assets is called the trustee. The trustee holds the legal title to the property that is in the trust. This means that the trustee can only use the assets and proceeds from the trust property for the benefit of the beneficiaries of the trust, never for his or her own profit. However, the grantor can make him/herself the beneficiary.

People Establish Trusts for Many Reasons:

A trust can be made "inter vivos" (created during the grantor's lifetime) or may be a testamentary trust that is set up by a will and does not come into being until after the grantor's death. Trusts are also revocable or irrevocable. While a revocable trust can be revoked and the grantor can reclaim the trust assets, an irrevocable trust cannot be rescinded once it has been set up.
