Deed of trust

A Deed of Trust – also known as a “declaration of trust and co-habitation”, “trust deed” or a “co-ownership agreement” – is a legal agreement between the joint owners of property. It may include information on contributions to purchase price, each individual owners share in the property, what happens if someone dies or moves out etc. A Deed of Trust basically reduces the risk of buying with someone else and is aimed at protecting you.

People buying a home with a partner or friend and who are tenants-in-common will often have a Deed of Trust drawn up to protect investments and occupation rights.

Your In-Deed Solicitors can prepare or approve a Deed of Trust for an additional fee of £299.00 inc VAT.
