Online CPD Module

Presentation time: 90 minutes

The drafting of trust deeds has changed enormously over the last 30 years. A common problem for trustees administering trusts is that circumstances have changed but there is limited ability for the trustees to adapt.

It is now common to see variation powers or powers of amendment included in trust deeds. These allow parties, usually the trustees, to make variations to terms of the trust where necessary to ensure the smooth running or proper administration of the trust. Where a trust deed requires variation, but does not contain an express variation power, there are still ways that the variation can be achieved.

This module will consider:

  • When and how to use express variation powers
  • Restrictions on varying appointors’ powers
  • Other powers that can be used to effect a variation (but which are not express powers of variation or amendment)
  • Documents and proceedings relating to variation
  • Example clauses to include when drafting
  • What changes can be expected under the proposed Trusts Bill.

After completing this module you will have:

  • A sound working knowledge of the issues that trust lawyers face when varying trust deeds.
