Trusts are an important but often overlooked aspect of daily life.
Many people are familiar with trusts in wills but trusts can also be found in residential property transactions, commercial property transactions, estate and succession planning, caring for children and the disabled.
If you are contemplating buying a house with your partner or buying a house with your parents or children, then you need a trust. If you are thinking of passing wealth in your lifetime to another family member and wish to protect that wealth and ensure that it is used for the benefit of the person that you are giving it to, then you need a trust.
If you are in business with someone else trading as a partnership then all your business property will be held in a trust.
We have 130 years experience of advising our clients on the most appropriate form of trust and work closely with chartered tax advisors and trust accountants to provide an appropriate bespoke solution.
