Need to revoke an existing living trust?

Use this form to revoke your existing revocable living trust.  Most living trusts give the trust maker the power to revoke it at any time.  Revoke your living trust if you're making a new living trust or if you want to invalidate your existing trust for any reason.

To revoke your living trust, fill out this form, print it, and bring it to a notary public.  After you and the notary public sign it, your living trust will be revoked.  IMPORTANT:  You will also need to transfer your property out of the trust.  This form prints with instructions about how to finalize your document and transfer your property out of the trust.

Making Simple Changes. To make simple changes to an existing trust, you may not need use a revocation.  Instead, look into making a trust amendment or restatement. 

  • A trust amendment is a document that you attach to your existing trust that adds, modifies or removes clauses from the trust.  Use an amendment to make simple changes, like adding a beneficiary or renaming a successor trustee.  To make an amendment, you can use Nolo's Amendment to Living Trust
  • A restatement of trust rewrites your existing trust document.  It includes new or changed clauses, but keeps the name of your existing trust. Use a trust amendment for more complicated changes.  You can get a restatement of trust from the lawyer or other resource that you used to create your existing trust.

Adding or removing property.  If you want to add or remove property from your trust, you do not need to revoke or amend it.  Adding or removing property usually requires only updating your property schedules and transferring the property in or out of the trust.

Making substantial changes.  If you want to make many or complicated changes to your trust, it’s best to revoke it and make a new one.  You can use this form for the revocation.

Try this trust revocation before you buy it.  Just create a Nolo.com account – this allows you to edit and save your trust revocation.  It’s easy, free, and there is no obligation.  If you do purchase the form, you will then be able to edit, print and download it as often as you like during your 1-year subscription.
