A: If it was never funded, unless there is something in the document or another document that compels you to fund it, then yes you can create a new trust. Depending on your situation and the language of the current trust, it may be able to be amended as well.
Q. My landlord came in lastnite kicked me out due to having a male visitor present. Is this legal?
A: No, your landlord's actions are not legal. He cannot forcibly remove you from your leased premises under any circumstance (even if he had a right to legally evict you).
