Declaration of Trust in Relation to Land (Tenants in Common)

This document can be used by the owner of real property (land or buildings) to create a trust over that property in favour of himself and one or more other beneficiaries, where the beneficiaries will be 'tenants in common'.

Tenants in common hold the beneficial interest in differing shares, and if one tenant in common dies, his interest in the property is inherited according to his Will.

The document may be used for example by a group of friends who wish to own a property together but manage their individual shares independently.

We offer this declaration of trust as one of many documents in our library of legal documents. It couldn’t be simpler to fill out – all you need to do is enter your personal details and you’ll be ready to go.
