Trusts are commonly used within Wills to protect property after death, to protect money for a
minor (under 18’s), make provision for disabled beneficiaries and ensure children from previous
relationships receive regular payments. Some Trusts are relatively simple to implement, while
others are far more complex and require specialist advice.
TYPES OF TRUST:
Property Trusts are designed to protect half of your home in the event it is sold to pay for care fees. It
also gives the surviving spouse the right to live in the property, normally for life and It also ensures that
certain beneficiaries will inherit from your share of the property.

Discretionary Trusts are written in to Wills to ensure incapacitated or disabled beneficiaries, (who are
unable to manage their own affairs) have their inheritance managed on their behalf.
They can also be used if a particular beneficiary is deemed irresponsible or wayward and who may
squander their inheritance.
