Creating a trust can offer further benefits after peace of mind by protecting your assets, which may include the family home, other possessions and money. A trust can ensure that your assets benefit and protect vulnerable people you care about and although it is not always necessary, it can offer a significant advantage for some people.
Trustees are appointed to be responsible for the safe distribution of the assets in a trust. You can decide who will have the responsibility for administering the trust or you can appoint professional trustees if you are uncertain of identifying suitable trustees.
It is always wise to include the selection of back up trustees to guarantee the availability of administrators of the trust.
You can create a trust in your will which is effective when the time comes or you may require a trust to be set up in your lifetime ( a lifetime settlement).
There are several types of trusts which can be considered, depending upon what you require the assets to be used for.
The costs of creating will trusts vary according to their type to suit your circumstances and requirements. Do remember that the cost is usually far outweighed by the advantages a trust can offer.
