  • Revocable Living Trust or Trust Amendment

  • Certification of Trust

  • Will

  • Durable Power of Attorney (financial POA)

  • Advance Health Care Directive (medical POA)

  • Declaration of Personal Property

  • Schedule of Assets

  • Grant Deed transferring CA real property to the name of the Trustee

These actions ensure that property will go to those you select in an orderly and economical fashion, but most importantly, they will ease the administrative burden placed on your survivors who are already trying to deal with the emotional trauma of death.
