    A trust is a legal mechanism used to manage property, monies and investments.

    • To minimize Inheritance Tax;
    • When someone is too young or incapacitated to handle their affairs;
    • When someone receives compensation due to a personal injury claim;

    Trusts explained

    Trusts may look complex but can be useful. Before creating a Trust, you should seek professional advice. In considering a trust, we can advise on the role of the Trustee, and what you should consider when selecting trustees.

    There are various types of trusts, including:


    Deciding which trust is the right one for you and creating one can be quite complex. We can help you to keep it simple and make sure your interests are represented.


    What if a trust and a will are conflicted?

    To ensure there is no confusion we would suggest revising your will at the same time as creating a trust.

    If you have a trust and a will, we advise you to have both documents checked by a solicitor to ensure they are not contradictory.
