This is a concise and easy to use, paperback guide for the general practitioner on the often-overlooked subject of making a declaration of trust at the end of a main transaction to protect a client's interests. With the increase in joint mortgages and cohabiting couples this is a topic of growing importance. Every aspect of the book has been designed for ease of use. Each chapter deals with a different scenario where a declaration of trust can be used. Every one begins with succinct commentary explaining law, procedure and points to watch out for - and concludes with a ready-to-use collection of all the relevant precedent material.

  • Provides highly practical guidance on a frequently ignored aspect of private client work
  • Shows how to protect a client's interest in all situations where a declaration of trust can be used
  • Covers transactions such as property purchases, joint ownership, wills, insurance policies and company shareholdings
  • Organised transaction-by-transaction so practitioners can go straight to relevant advice * Contains over 40 precedents ready for use
  • Features all the precedents on a CD-ROM for rapid drafting
  • Includes a new section on mutual wills
  • Deals with the implications of recent major legislation - such as Stamp Duty Land Tax and the Land Registration Act 2002
