#52 – Lost trust deeds – some solutions

In this podcast the View Legal team explore the following topic ‘Lost Trust Deeds’ which was held on 16 September 2020.

This podcast is a take out of that session. For access to more webinars and resources join one (or all) of the View Communities.

During this extract of the webinar, we explore one of the most problematic issues faced by any trustee – a lost trust deed. Without a fully executed, ‘wet ink’ trust deed there can be disastrous key tax, stamp duty and administration issues that arise.

This session will provide practical recommendations for addressing all key issues that arise with lost deeds, including:

  • Where to look, who to contact and when to give up
  • tax and stamp duty ramifications of a lost the deed
  • how to legitimately adopt a replacement trust deed
  • is court approval necessary
  • practical solutions
