People often wish to create “trusts” within their Wills. Trusts are a way of protecting assets and some examples are:
1. To allow a surviving partner to continue to live in a house for the rest of their life, with the house then passing to named beneficiaries (“a Life Interest Trust”).
2. A “Discretionary Trust” – this trust gives the people in charge of the trust, “the Trustees” discretion as to when it is best to pay money, how much, and to which of the beneficiaries named in the Trust.
3. A Trust for a disabled member of your family.
It is important for us to understand your family circumstances, financial position, property ownership and motivation in wishing to create a Trust in your Will. We will discuss the various options with you and provide a letter of advice along with a draft of your Trust Will for you to consider. We will then discuss any questions or concerns you have before finalising the terms of your Trust Will.
What our customers say about us
"Quite frankly you have been brilliant, supportive and kind, most of all very well informed, professional and very clear on the path to take. You supported me every step of the way and achieved the most positive outcome far beyond my expectations and your support during this difficult time was constant. "
"I found Hepburn Delaney to be totally professional, compassionate and very understanding. All the team have been brilliant to deal with. A special thank you to Rebecca Delaney; without her being at the end of the phone when a crisis happened I could not have coped. I would strongly recommend Hepburn Delaney to anyone who needs a solicitor with the personal touch."
"I would like to thank Gemma for her outstanding work on my case. Her expertise and attention to detail were tremendously valuable."
