We’re going to talk about whether you should have a trust or a will today. Which one’s better? And why do you need one or the other? Well, a trust is going to avoid something called probate. A will does not avoid probate and it makes you go through the court process. So take control of your property, it will appoint someone in charge based on your will, and then they will administer it, could take about a year or two before you could even do anything with the property. Or the beneficiaries will have ultimate use of the property.
