Trust Deed Help & Advice

A trust deed, which can also be known as a “deed of trust” or a “declaration of trust,” is a legal agreement between the joint owners of property.

These are most commonly used where an unmarried couple is buying a home together, particularly when one of them is putting more money into the purchase than the other.

A trust deed can include various pieces of information such as:

  • the amount each person contributed towards the purchase;
  • the amount of each person’s share in the ownership of the property;
  • what happens if one or both owners wish to sell.

A trust deed is aimed at protecting you in the event that you go your separate ways at a later point and reduces the risk for you buying with someone else.
