Trust deeds may need to be amended so as to sit parallel or at the least not inconsistent with perpetually evolving legislation, where an inadequacy is discovered in the terms of the trust or where the parties agree on a change to beneficial interests. Generally, trust deeds may be amended in accordance with the terms of the trust deed (if any) or by application to the Court. Many Asset Protection Lawyers or Trust Lawyers include express clauses in trust deeds that facilitate a variation to the terms of the trust in certain circumstances. Alternatively, Courts have an inherent power as well as statutorily conferred powers to modify the terms of trust deeds. However, these powers are very strictly limited.
Certain variations to trust deeds may be considered recreations of the trust. A recreation of a trust can trigger, amongst other things, tax consequences for state revenue purposes. This underscores the importance of having a trust deed correctly and accurately drawn up by a Trust Lawyer at the first instance. Amongst other things, a trust deed should comprehensively address the process and circumstances under which an amendment or variation to the trust deed can be properly effected, so as to avoid, to the extent possible, acrimony and unnecessary expenses in remediating inadequacies and flaws.
