To put it simply, a Trust is a document that appoints a person known as a Trustee to hold property on behalf of a named Beneficiary or Beneficiaries. A Trust can be drafted for many different purposes. A Trust can be used to hold real and/or personal property and may be of record at the Registry of Deeds or may be a private document noted only by a Trustee Certificate. A Trust can be used for Estate Planning purposes, for tax purposes or to protect assets. To determine if a Trust is right for you, contact our experienced lawyers today.Review and Amend:
In some instances, you may come across a property held by a Trust, you may be a named Beneficiary of a Trust or you may wish to purchase a Beneficial Interest in a Trust. No matter what your situation is, our experienced attorneys are available to review your Trust and answer all of your questions regarding the same.
If you are a Trustee, Donor or Beneficiary of a Trust, you may wish to make changes to a Trust. These changes may range from a change in Trustee or a sale of a beneficial interest. Our attorneys are prepared to draft any and all documentation necessary to make your requested changes if the Trust so allows.
