Understanding the Property Protection Trust Will

What is a Property Protection Trust Will?

A Property Protection Trust Will is a legal mechanism that enables you to protect your property and assets, ensuring that they are preserved for your chosen beneficiaries, typically your loved ones, while also mitigating potential threats such as care home fees or inheritance tax.

The Key Components


In a Property Protection Trust Will, you, as the testator, appoint trustees to oversee the trust’s assets and distribute them in accordance with your wishes. These trustees play a pivotal role in executing the trust’s objectives.


Beneficiaries are the individuals or entities who will ultimately benefit from the trust. In most cases, they are family members, but the flexibility of a PPT Will allows for a wide range of beneficiaries.


The most significant asset involved in a Property Protection Trust Will is, unsurprisingly, your property. This asset is transferred into the trust, providing it with the legal protection it needs.

The Advantages of a Property Protection Trust Will

Protection from Care Home Fees

One of the most compelling advantages of a Property Protection Trust Will is its ability to shield your property from care home fees. Without this protective measure, your property may be vulnerable to being sold to cover the cost of care.

Inheritance Tax Planning

Inheritance tax is a concern for many, and a PPT Will can be a valuable tool in reducing your estate’s inheritance tax liability. By placing your property in trust, its value is excluded from your estate, potentially resulting in substantial tax savings.

Legacy Preservation

Preserving your legacy is at the heart of a Property Protection Trust Will. Your loved ones can inherit your property, ensuring that your assets remain within the family for generations to come.

Creating a Property Protection Trust Will

The process of establishing a PPT Will involves several critical steps:

  1. Consultation: Begin by seeking expert legal advice. A qualified solicitor can guide you through the intricacies of creating a Property Protection Trust Will tailored to your unique circumstances.

  2. Asset Assessment: Identify the assets you wish to protect and transfer them into the trust, including your property.

  3. Trust Document Drafting: Work closely with your solicitor to draft a comprehensive trust document that outlines your wishes and appoints trustees and beneficiaries.

  4. Execution: Sign the trust document in the presence of witnesses and have it properly notarised.

  5. Ongoing Management: Trustees are responsible for managing the trust’s assets in accordance with your wishes.
