Is it possible to complete a loan for a revocable trust in which the creator of the trust or trustee has no ownership in the loan? An example would be John Doe Revocable Trust. John Doe is not on the loan, but Jane Doe is, being listed as guarantor. The trust is currently using John Doe's tax ID number. I'm unsure who to CIP because the loan will be completed in the name of the trust with John's tax ID number, yet he will have to control over the loan. Would you CIP the gurantor or John because the trust is using John's SSN?

The trust is the customer.

Attempting to make a loan to a revocable trust?? You need to be visiting with your legal counsel on that one. What happens when the trust is revoked??

Regardless of who controls the funds in the Trust, the Trust is the customer, correct?

If that is who you are making the loan too - yes.
