Lillington Living Trust Attorneys

A living trust is an important tool that many of our clients have chosen to use in order to ensure that in the event of their death, their family and loved ones are taken care of. It enables a quick transfer of assets to your family. A living trust avoids the hassle, delay, and cost of probate. If you are interested in setting up a living trust for your family, contact Kelly & West to speak to a Lillington living trust attorney.

What is a Living Trust?

With a living trust, you create a trust for your property and appoint a “trustee” to hold the legal title to the assets. The appointed trustee can be a relative, a bank, an attorney, or you can act as the trustee yourself. Whoever is appointed as the trustee manages the assets and property. In the event of your death, the property left behind is given to the individuals you selected to inherit, bypassing the process of probate.

Probate is the process in which your property must be inventoried and appraised, and debts and taxes paid from the estate. When probate is complete, the remainder of the property goes to the people you designated. Probate is a costly and time consuming process, and the living trust will help your family avoid it.

    Alexander C. – Harnett County Property Owner

    “Reggie Kelly is a fantastic attorney with fantastic paralegals. My wife and I have been using him and his firm since 1983 when we first purchased property in Harnett County 37 years ago. He offers excellent legal advice and guidance. He never gets in a hurry to get us out the door because of his next appointment. He always takes the time needed to check out all of the issues that might come up. Reggie Kelly is a proud American and he loves our country and he wants everyone to do well. Reggie Kelly is an even finer person than he is a fantastic attorney and we are very fortunate to also be able to call him and his wife Cheryl our friends. We give him a 10 STAR Review!”
