Writing a Trust in your Will can be a brilliant way of making sure that your money and property is protected for the use of your spouse whilst preserving the estate for the benefit of children or grandchildren. Trusts can also be used to help with Inheritance Tax and are often used to preserve inheritance for vulnerable beneficiaries or those who may not be mature enough to manage the responsibility of inheriting directly. Sometimes an added side effect of a Will Trust is that your family home could be protected from being assessed to pay for care at a later date.
