Setting Up a Trust

Setting up a trust requires proper planning and administration, but it is generally a fairly simple process. A trust is simply a transfer of legal ownership of property or assets from a property owner (the "trustor") to a person or institution (the "trustee). There are several factors that go into setting up a trust, such as the age, size of the estate, and marital status of the trustor.
