New Trusts Act - Drafting New Trust Deeds - 1.5 CPD hours

  • Publication date: July 2020
  • Authors: Chris Kelly, Kimberly Lawrence

There will need to be a radical change to the drafting of trust deeds in order to comply with the New Trusts Act. This webinar will consider how you can meet your obligations to explain modification of default duties and indemnity clauses to your clients. It will also examine what trustee powers should be included in their deeds and other changes required.

The webinar will review the aspects of the Trusts Act 2019 which will affect the way in which trust deeds will be drafted in future. It will also consider changes that may need to be made to existing trust deeds (where there is a power to vary). The webinar will also look at how best to meet the requirements of the new Act when drafting trust deeds in future.

Topics covered will include:
  • The obligations to retain trust documentation and to give information to beneficiaries
  • Modifying the default duties set out in the new Act
  • The obligation to advise settlors about the effect of modifying these default duties
  • The limits on exemption and limitation of liability clauses under the new Act
  • The duty to advise settlors about all such exemption or limitation of liability clauses
  • Other provisions of the new Act which will affect the way trust deeds are drafted – for example the age of majority.
