Property Protection Trust
What is a Property Protection Trus ?
A Property Protection Trust , sometimes known as an Asset Protection Trust, is a will that works a little differently to other trusts, as your wishes regarding the financial status of your property(s) is granted straight away, and not on your death.
What happens when you create a PPT is that your property is gifted straight away to the PPT, but allows you to still live in your property. Ultimately it protects the value of your property and your surviving spouse or partner. Upon your death, half the share of the property will pass into the PPT, meaning that your partner is cared for financially. What then happens upon their death is that the trust fund then passes on to any remaining children or other named individuals stated in the will.
