Declaration of Trust and land Registry

Postby Yiannis17 » Wed Sep 22, 2021 2:57 pm


Does a declaration of trust need to be reflected on the land registry? I know that with a deed of assignment this does?

The wills have also been updated to incorporate the declaration of trust.

Thank you

I am not an accountant. I am not a lawyer either.

Probably not. However, if the property is in a single name but the DOT is for multiple names then I think a form A restriction must be added. (It's a requirement on the trustee to register the restriction it but if the trustee doesn't then a beneficiary of the trust can too)

(You can DIY adding a form A restriction. Taking it off again is not so easy)
