Will I still have control over my property if I have a living trust?

If you have a living trust or a revocable trust, you do retain a control over your assets. Usually, you are going to appoint yourself as the trustee. As the trustee, you have total control of you assets until such time as either you become incapacitated and a successor trustee takes over or you pass. But as long a you are the trustee, that revocable trust is amendable, it's adaptable and you can change it or revoke it at any time as well as you have complete control of all of the assets within that trust.
