PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Untitled Document

With an emphasis on clear English and ease of understanding, Drafting Trusts and Will Trusts: A Modern Approach has won a reputation for bringing a fresh approach to creating documents. It provides guidance on best practice when drafting trusts and will trusts, and features a comprehensive range of newly updated precedents, drafted in a straightforward, modern style.

The work helps ensure the practitioner can make the best succession planning judgments through the use of the correct wills and trusts, and is a practical tool to simplify the drafting of trusts, with easy-to-understand guidance and valuable precedents that are ready to use.

The new 15th edition incorporates all recent developments in the law, including analysis of the latest case law.

  • Covers the technical issues involved in drafting settlements, common mistakes and traps.
  • Precedents are accompanied with an explanation of why the text is there and the choices which need to be made.
