Dealing with Trusts
Many married couples (and to a lesser extent cohabitees) solve the problem of protecting assets against care home fees and second marriages by the use of trusts. This session considers some of the problems that can arise. It will consider:
- Does the trust have to be registered?
- Is a nil rate band discretionary trust worth keeping or should it be wound up within two years of death?
- How can the costs of running such trusts be reduced?
- Conferring rights to income
- Mandating income
- Dealing with IPDI trusts
- Drafting issues
- Implications of terminating early
- Risk of 1975 Act claims
- Is the residence nil rate band available?
- What if a trustee loses capacity? Can they be removed?
