A living trust is not superceded by any later will unless the person who established the trust disolves it. A will can not change or void a trust that is properly set up. The later will can only make bequeaths of property that was not put in the living trust.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
