Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Answer: If you are setting up a trust to transfer your assets into, you do not need to have the same trustee as the trustee of your current trust. However, you should confirm that the current trust gives you the power to withdraw all of the assets in order to place them into the new 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.
