The property will then be dealt with as specified in your living trust.

A Pour-Over Will can also be used to transfer any personal clothing, jewelry and furniture to specific beneficiaries outside your living trust.

If you do not have a Pour-Over Will, any missed property will be distributed according to law, as if you had died intestate (i.e., without a will).
