  • Signatories to deed of trust?

    The deed of trust relates to a leasehold property, purchased on trust for the beneficiary. The settlor and trustee are the same, and only one beneficiary who is not the legal owner of the property at the land registry, does not live there, and has 100% beneficial ownership.

    Only the settlor/trustee has signed the document, not the beneficiary. Is this a validly signed deed? It is witnessed by an unrelated party.

    Thank you for any thoughts.

    Hi Mark1980,
    The beneficiary wouldn't need to sign the Deed unless they were part legal owner themselves. It is the person creating the Deed who has to sign and have their signature witnessed.
    I am a qualified solicitor and am happy to try and assist informally, where needed.

    Any posts I make on LegalBeagles are for information and discussion purposes only and shouldn't be seen as legal advice. Any practical advice I give is without liability. I do not represent people on the forum.

    If in doubt you should always seek professional face to face legal advice.
