Do I retain control of my property if it is in a trust?
If you have a revocable or living trust and you have assets held in that trust, really the only thing that’s different is the titling. Instead of having the assets titled in your own soul name, the assets are titled in the name of the trust. As long as you’re the trustee, you have complete control over those assets. At some point in time if you become incapacitated or you pass, a successor trustee would take over. At that point in time the successor trustee would be in control of the assets.
