My sister is letting a third party create the trust, and serve as the trustee. In that case, will the trust be valid even if she doesn’t sign? Will my niece still be able to receive the inheritance?

The signature of the ‘Grantor’ or the ‘Settlor’ is a must for the trust to be valid. As you say that your sister is letting some one create the trust and appointing a third party to be the Trustee, it will be valid.

I appreciate your concern for your niece. Since this is about inheritance, I would recommend that your sister consult an estate-planning attorney, since things could go horribly wrong if not done properly.
