Assets in a Trust

Trusts are a way of managing wealth including money, investments, land, or property for you, your family, or anyone else whom you would like to benefit including causes that you support. When you place certain assets in a trust, they are then under the control of an appointed person(s) called ‘trustees’.
The trustees are then in charge of managing the trust according to your instructions, even after your death. Setting up a trust can be a flexible and tax-efficient way to plan for the future, provide for your loved ones, and protect vulnerable beneficiaries.
Our experienced team can support you with setting up and managing trusts, ensuring that you can take advantage of all the potential benefits.

We can help you set up a trust to:

  • Securely pass on assets to the next generation
  • Provide for vulnerable loved ones
  • Provide for children and partners from different relationships
  • Reduce inheritance tax payments
  • Protection from residential care home fees
  • Fund education for your children and grandchildren
  • Provide for children and partners from different relationships
  • Manage personal injury compensation
  • Allowing you to provide gifts while retaining control of the assets
As long as you choose your trustees carefully and are confident in the Trustees you appoint, setting up a Trust fund offers many opportunities.

Types of Trusts

Trusts are often extraordinarily complex and need specialist tax knowledge. Our expert team of Will and Trusts Solicitors will use their expertise to make sure your finances are safeguarded for you and your family.

There are many types of Trust fund designed for specific situations, however, common types are:

A Discretionary Trust

Protects family wealth for future generations while also providing for family members

A Personal Injury Trust

That will preserve any compensation received and still enable you to receive benefits

Declaration of Trust (Deed of Trust)

To regulate ownership of a house

Property Trust Will

To protect the value of your home

Trust for a Disabled Child

That will carry on throughout their life

Will Trust

Appointing your Trustees to look after your estate until your children are old enough to inherit

Are your existing Trusts still relevant to their original intentions?

Many trusts were set up a long time ago and so, therefore, may no longer fulfil their original objectives.

  • Do you have a trust in place but have not reviewed it since the changes to the inheritance tax regime?
  • Are you a trustee requiring advice on your duties and responsibilities?
  • Are you a beneficiary of a trust and need advice as regards your position?
  • In recent years new legislation and regulations have reduced the effectiveness and benefit of trusts, however, we can make sure they are still fit for purpose by advising on the best structures for your specific needs.
