We have a living trust and we sometimes make changes to it. For example adding new bank accounts, or updating it after we sell and buy a house. Thus we amend the trust. We give papers copies to the trustees but it's rather cumbersome to mail them. We store our copy in our safe box. We dont want the trustee to know our safe combo. If something happens to us can the trustees use the copy to execute the trust?Thanks all for replying. What prompted my question about the legality of the copy is the fact that I couldn't find a safe, accessible and practical location to store the original copy of trust. By safe, accessible and practical I mean a place that the successors can easily access once (and only once) we become incapable of managing our trust. If you know a good way to store it (besides the lawyer's office), I would definetily like to know.
