“Living with a trust” from drafting to inheriting, and what it means to inherit via a Trust for you and your clients…
We talk about the use of Trusts as a means of protection for your clients and their families, but how does a Trust ensure that the assets are utilised for the chosen beneficiaries? Are you clear on the possible implications in relation to divorce and long term care if Trustees (and Beneficiaries) disclose trust assets and information to third parties?
What do Trustees need to do to ensure that the wishes of the Settlor are followed? What do they need to be aware of when considering how best to achieve the aims in the Memorandum of Wishes? Do they know how best to anticipate and manage the needs of the beneficiaries across the lifetime of the Trust, which could be up to 125 years (in England & Wales).
What can go wrong if Trustees don’t understand their legal obligations?
Having launched a new software process to arrange and hold Trustee Meetings, join us for a “deep dive” into the importance of Trust Management – and understand what can go wrong if Trustees aren’t aware of the duties they are placed under.

Probate – the Estate Planners guide to Estate Administration
It used to be the case that simple estates passing through probate were prevalent, but very few are that straightforward these days. It is often the case that probate is increasingly more complicated, and many probate practitioners are unaware of what may go wrong and how they can claim reliefs.
Here at CTT Group, we have completed probate on thousands of estates. In addition, we have seen hundreds of probate claims be made for free through the use of statutes and precedent to claim reliefs that few other practitioners seem to be aware of.
This course has been developed to help you with everything you need to know about probate, the things that can go wrong during the process and how you can help your clients benefit from IHT exemptions and reliefs you may not be aware of.
- Probate – a brief update
- What can go wrong (missing reliefs, missing allowances, RNRB, transferable nil rate bands)
- What is the value of 50% of a property for probate purposes?
- And more.
This course is taking place on Monday 26th September from 9:30am-1:00pm.
