What is a trust?
A trust provides a flexible a way of managing assets (for example money, investments, land or buildings) for people. A trust enables a person to ring fence these assets and use them for the benefit of their loved ones; for example, to make provisions for Children and protect the family home from potential care home costs.
Trusts are usually setup on the death of the 'settler', but can also be initiated while the person is living. Trusts can include more than one beneficiary, like a whole family or nominated group of people.
The 'settler' decides how the assets in a trust should be used. This is usually set out in a document called the 'trust deed'.
Professional will writers can advise the best trusts to cover individual circumstances.

Why set up a trust?
A trust can help manage your assets in a way that benefits your loved ones the most. Some of the popular trusts that are set up include;
Right to Reside or Occupy
Gives the occupant of the deceased the right to live in the property without ever owning it.
Protective Property Trust
Gifts the deceased share and interest in property to the trustees. Ensures assets ultimately pass to children. Protects a share of the estate from care costs.
Disabled/Vulnerable Persons Trust
Wills written to include a discretionary trust residue. Typically used to provide for disabled or vulnerable beneficiaries.
Flexible Life Interest Trust
Beneficial for high net worth clients. Ensures the testator provides for his or her spouse providing income from the entirety of the residue of their estate.
Business Property Relief Trust
Will for those with Business interests. Ensures maximum tax relief at death while ensuring beneficiaries receive income from the business.
