Declaration Of Trust
Buying a property together or if you are planning to move in with your partner who already owns the property is a milestone moment, but it can turn from a dream into a nightmare.
A Declaration of Trust safeguards the interests of the parties in terms of their financial contributions to the property.
Put simply, the Declaration prevents unpleasant surprises in the event of a separation. Having a Declaration of Trust in place removes unnecessary stress and costly property-related litigation during a relationship breakdown.
