Family trusts

A family trust - also commonly referred to as a life protection trust, a spouse protection trust or a wealth protection trust - allows you to transfer assets to trustees, who then have responsibility for looking after the assets until they can be passed on to other beneficiaries – this makes them particularly useful for keeping assets safe until a child or grandchild is old enough to inherit.

An example of a family trust could be a Life Interest Trust. Under these agreements a person transfers their property into a trust, and this allows them to live in the property and also receive income from it for the rest of their life. Following their death their specified beneficiaries become entitled to any capital generated by the property.

If you own a property alongside your partner but would like to leave your share of the property to someone else, perhaps your children, then we can help you to plan for this.
