I am sorry there are family circumstances that are causing issues. A revocable living trust may be revoked by first transferring the property that was titled in the name of the trust back to the individual who created the trust (known as the grantor or trustor). That is the trustee deeds real property as trustee of the revocable living trust back to the name of the grantor/trustor. Similar, any personal property would need to be titled back to the individual (such as vehicle title).
Sample language to transfer the property is “***** *****, trustee of the ***** ***** REVOCABLE TRUST dated the _____ day of ________________, 20 _____, hereby grants to ***** *****, individual, the real property …………………”
After the property have been transferred the trustee executes a revocation of trust in front of two witnesses and has it notarized. Here is a link to a sample revocation form: http://www.lectlaw.com/forms/f181.htm
If the Trust has been recorded with the local Court which is not typically the case, but if it was, then the grantor/trustor should notify the Court the trust has been terminated. Sample notice:
I, ***** *****, Trustee hereby revoke the ***** ***** Revocable Living Trust, under agreement dated ________________, ________, according to the power reserved to me by said agreement.
All property held in the trust shall be returned to the grantor/trustor.
