Asset/Lifetime Protection Trust

Protecting everything you have worked for should be a top priority when planning your estate. With your assets in trust, you can be sure that your property is out of reach from third parties.

Our estate planning team knows the intricacies of the different types of Asset Protection trusts, and we are on hand to recommend which one is best for you, depending on your situation.

Why is this the trust for you?

The Asset Protection Trust ensures that all your assets will ultimately pass to your children or your chosen beneficiary and cannot be eroded after death. We think it is important to highlight some ways in which the erosion could occur:


If your spouse remarries in the future, your assets and any inheritance could pass to the new spouse rather than to your children.


Following a divorce, your assets could be passed onto in-laws ahead of your children.


Family members could attempt to make an application to contest the will if they are unhappy about the distribution of your estate.


Your spouse becomes bankrupt, and their assets are used to pay potential creditors.


If your spouse needs to move into a care home, their long-term care fees will be assessed from their total assets, including inheritance, meaning this money is not passed onto your children and other beneficiaries.

The use of an Asset Protection Trust structure can solve these problems and provide you with the comfort that your loved ones will inherit your assets. With this trust, Paradigm can ensure that;

  • Until your passing, you will retain the full benefit of all assets held in the trust and the power to appoint and remove the trustees.
  • Whilst you are living in the property, the enjoyment of the property is your benefit.
  • Assets can be dealt with by those you trust in the event of your incapacity.
  • You control who inherits jointly-owned assets if a surviving partner remarries.
  • Your property is passed on after death without delay.
  • Your family saves money in probate fees, as probate will not be needed for the assets in the trust.
  • The cost and possible delay involved in obtaining a Grant of Probate, which can be avoided if a trust is in place.

With our continued support, we free you from the burden of worry and provide you with peace of mind that your assets will be inherited by your loved ones when you are no longer here.
