Efficient and experienced

During a transaction you may want to protect your financial interest in a property. To do so, you will need to sign a declaration of trust with any other owners of the property.

This document, if drafted correctly, will ensure that when the property is sold it is sold in accordance with that agreement. This means that if you are purchasing a property together and one of you is putting in substantially more money than the other, you can protect this financial interest.

Ellisons Solicitors are experienced in such matters and can draft bespoke documentation to protect your interests.
