Under California Law, your Living Trust is a private document. Unlike a Will, the Living Trust is not filed and made a public record on your death. No one has a right to see your personal private provisions except for very limited purposes. For example, the Assessor's Office may require a copy to ensure that a distribution is being transferred from a parent to a child to qualify for the exclusion of reassessment of property taxes. That is the extent of it --the Trust is not filed as a public record. When banks ask you for a copy of your Trust to arrange a Trust bank account you should give them your Certificate of Trust, not your entire Trust Agreement.
