Conveyancing – Options when purchasing a new home or property!

When purchasing a residential property, you can either purchase the property in your personal name/s or in another entity, for example a family trust.

Family trusts have asset protection and numerous other advantages and are often used to own property.

The abolition of gift duty from 1 October 2011 now makes it even more attractive to purchase and hold property and other assets in a trust.
