Declaration of Trust not Executed on DeathMake Text Bigger
A Declaration of Trust was set up on my Fathers property in 2002. I am the beneficiary, but only because I am the Contributor, I paid for his house in full.
My Father died a few weeks ago, and I have now found out from Land Registry, the mortgage free property, was sold 6 months before he died, by his Power of Attorney (my brother), to his own son, for half of the market value.
A mortgage was taken out by Lloyd’s Bank.
I have spoken to my Fathers Solicitor, who informed me my Father had changed his Trust, I then showed him the original DOT and he seemed as shocked as me.
Any thoughts would be very gratefully received.
