Badly Drafted Trust vs. Well Drafted Trust


In our live classes, we like to show good trust drafting examples and bad trust drafting examples. It’s good to see what the elements are for a well drafted trust. Here are examples of both extremes.

As can be seen from these examples, format and alignment matter. Before you read through the badly drafted trust, the expectations that the trust will not be well written is high!  It looks so sloppy!  Not to say that the language of the trust is not important – far from it!  But remember, take some time to make the trust look like presentable. When the client(s) has passed, someone will be  picking up the trust to figure out how to administer it. Make it easy on them!

Check these out!.
