Trusts have been used by families for centuries to protect. A Trust is a formal transfer of assets (whether they maybe property, shares or just cash), to a small group of people knows as trustees with instructions that they hold the assets for the benefit of others. If the Trust is made in your lifetime to take immediate effect then it is usually by a Trust deed. If is it to be created after your death then a Trust must be set up in your Will.
These can protect family assets such as investment, pension schemes and property allowing them to pass to family members.

Clients can also store other documents such as Powers of Attorney, Title Deeds, Living Wills and other important documents at no extra charge.

Probate is still required where there is no Will although the process is known as Administration. The Society of Will Writers Trust Corporation can assist you probate even though they are not named in the Will.
