Gorvins Approach to Trusts

Our approach to setting up a Trust is to put your needs and wishes first. From there we will provide you with cutting edge and up-to-date legal knowledge to help you set up your trusts in the most efficient and effective manner. All members of our team are highly skilled in advising clients on the best way forward for their individual circumstance. There can be a number of reasons for setting up a trust:

  • Keeping money and assets with the direct family
  • Looking after money to be passed to young children
  • Protecting vulnerable or disabled beneficiaries
  • Protecting your estate from the impact of care home fees
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Asset protection
  • Flexibility – to enable decisions about who benefits from your estate to be finalised later
  • Protecting means-tested benefits after receiving personal injury damages

How do I know if I should set up a Trust?

If you want to ensure your assets and estate are kept to those who you want to benefit, then setting up a trust is an excellent way to proceed. They aren’t just for the rich amongst us, instead they offer a real and practical way of making sure your wishes are fulfilled and your money is protected on a long-term scale. One example is putting money into a trust for your children to purchase a home when they are older instead of gifting it directly. This allows you to have control over the assets but also is one way of mitigating inheritance tax as the value of the gift is removed from the estate.

How Can Gorvins Help?

This area of the law is constantly changing so it is vital that you seek specialist advice to ensure that your estate is properly protected and that your family don’t lose out from what should be theirs. Our highly trained and well-versed solicitors will advise you on whether the use of a trust is relevant to you and help to guide you to selecting the right type that will benefit you and your loved ones the most.
