Trusts Legal Services

A trust is an arrangement where property or other assets are held by one or more people for the benefit of another.

People set up trusts for many reasons:

  • A trust can be used in dealing with joint arrangements such as when two or more people are buying or selling a home
  • Trusts can also be used in looking after less able family members such as children and the elderly
  • Reducing exposure to certain taxes such as ring-fencing the compensation paid in a personal accident claim is another area where a trust can have a beneficial effect
