A Practitioner's Guide to Powers and Duties of Trustees is a practical self-contained guide to an important area of law which has gained prominence as a result of the changes wrought by the Trustee Act 2000. This book covers all aspects of powers and duties of trustees, including the duties of care they owe, administrative and dispositive responsibilities, matters which can and cannot be delegated, as well as featuring cases in detail.

Written by well known practitioners in the field, this concise, user-friendly handbook appeals to all those who are involved with trust property, whether as a beneficiary, trustee or personal representative, and their professional advisers.
