Make An AppointmentAbout Us

Make the process easy for your loved ones at a difficult time

Every one of us wants to pass on our hard-earned assets to loved ones. Before that is possible there may be unexpected complications, legal costs and delays, tax authorities, potential future relationships, former in-laws, creditors and local authorities eyeing up your assets.

More of us own our own homes and have more assets than ever before and at the same time families have become increasingly diverse and fragmented. The threats to passing assets down to our chosen beneficiaries have increased dramatically. A couple of generations ago divorce and re-marriage were rare; people retired at 65 and seldom needed long-term care; and only a small percentage of the population owned their own homes or had sufficient wealth to pass on.

Our expert Trusts advisors can help you make the best decisions

The right trusts puts you in control, maximise your inheritance for your loved ones and protects the most vulnerable in the family. Wise decisions made now will avoid complications, friction and difficulties in the future.

Different forms of Trusts for every situation

Trusts are not new. They have been used for over 700 years to protect and preserve family wealth. They are no longer just the preserve of the wealthy. Trusts are now available for everyone wanting to protect and preserve their assets for their loved ones.

There are two main types:

Will Trusts

Will Trusts are only come into effect on death. During your lifetime you retain assets in your own personal name. Most modern Wills have Trusts in them, the most common types used are:

  •  Protective Property Trust: protects your home from ‘sideways disinheritance.’

  • Children’s Trust: protects young children’s inheritance against financial immaturity,

  • Inheritance Tax Planning Trusts: mitigates the Inheritance Tax burden for unmarried couples or business owners.

  • Disabled Beneficiaries Trust: protects vulnerable beneficiaries

  • Pet trust: leaving a sum of money to pay for the upkeep and care of pets after you die

Lifetime or Family Trusts

A Family Trust can be set up with the assets transferred into it while you are still alive but allowing you to retain control and access while you live. It is used to protect your wealth from a number of threats or what-ifs. The principal benefits include:

  • Avoiding the cost and delay of probate in complex estates

  • Protection against sideways disinheritance

  • Protection in the event of the early death or divorce of a beneficiary

  • Protection against financial hardship or the insolvency of a beneficiary

  • Avoidance of Inheritance Tax in beneficiaries’ estates in certain circumstances

  • Protection against excluded or unreliable beneficiaries having access to your assets while you are alive

  • Protection from creditors and loss of means-tested benefits in the future

  • Maximum protection for your inheritance with complete flexibility for you.
