Can our father change an Irrevocable Trust?

Hi
I do not know what seems to have happened but after Lindsay Keith's comments on 22-02-20 at 20.39 every comment after this has not been about our family's situation.
I think someone else's thread has been confused with ours????? Could I respectfully asked the administrator to shed some light on this?
Thank you
Tony... Read More

Can our father change an Irrevocable Trust?

Thank you all for taking the time to post your thoughts. It has been a very distressing and troubling time for our family.
The trust was not set up for tax reasons as our father's estate was not large enough to warrant it.
Our father had set out to do the right thing. He planned ahead and made what he thought was a responsible and good provision that gave a home to our sister but protected the asset for the family in the future. He put his faith in his adviser. He seems to have been very let down not only by our sister but by the solicitor who set up the trust. It seems absolutely crazy to all of us that a solicitor would set a trust up without allowing any provision to alter it in the future.
As much as we need to do due diligence when dealing in any financial or legal transaction these schemes are very specialised and you hope the advise you receive is the very best and is in your long term interests.
Ticking the 'Irrevocable Trust' box and not the 'Revocable Trust' box was a very simple thing for the solicitor to do but the implications and the effects this will have in the long term have caused a lot of upset...(to say the least).... Read More

Advice on settling a Subsidence Claim

Hi Jason and Paul,
Many thanks for your comments. They have made us reassess are thoughts going forward. We think as there are long term implications in our decision we need to approach an experienced and reputable loss assessor who can evaluate our circumstances and cast an experienced eye over what is being proposed and ensure nothing is being missed.
Does anyone have an opinion on this and also is there any advice we can be given when choosing a loss asessor?

Paul your comments were very helpful. I tried to read your members profile but it wasn't clear?

Thank you in advance once again... Read More

Drunken neighbour harassing threatening and frightening off my tenants!

Hi and thank you for your comments
Lewis: Frustratingly he owns his own flat so there is no landlord that can be contacted. The freeholder is a London based PLC so they will not be interested.
Rob: The letting agent has advised him to contact the police but most tenants feel this can make things worse so although my tenants love the accommodation they just seem to bail out of the tenancy.... Read More
