Amending a trust is a delicate task that requires experienced hands. Antunes Lawyers can amend trust deeds with care so that you can avoid the potential of a costly resettlement.

When the time comes to amend a trust deed, attention to detail is paramount. Our lawyers will cross-check any proposed amendment to ensure that your new trust deed is watertight.

Before you take the step to amend your trust deed, it’s important to evaluate the pros and cons. A few circumstances where it might be appropriate to amend a deed include planning for the succession of the appointer, changing the trustee, or removing foreign individuals from the class of beneficiaries (if the trust owns real estate) to avoid additional taxes.

Our lawyers can assist you in making the decision to amend your deed and draft a new deed that protects your best interests. Incorrectly amending a trust deed can lead to resettlement or cause the trust to be vested, which can trigger significant additional taxes and stamp duty, so it’s worth having a lawyer that you can rely on to avoid mistakes.
