Sample text

The nature of trusts—a trust creator transfers property to a trustee to manage on behalf of a beneficiary—hasn't changed much over the years. Please see Chapter 5 for more on what trusts are. We explain why in Chapter 7. The trustee—one entrusted—is legal owner of property held by a trust. We have more to say about trustees in Chapter 6. If you are a beneficiary, the trust's money is not “your” money. A “remainder” beneficiary (sometimes called a remainderman) receives whatever property is left in the trust (the “remainder”) when the trust comes to an end.

You can learn much more about the distribution committee in Chapter 20 and in Appendix 3. As with the distribution committee, we describe the office of the beneficiary at much more length in Chapter 20, as well as in the rest of Part Four. It is tempting to move from this point quickly to the practicalities of building the trustee-beneficiary relationship or to the even more fundamental, informational business of who are the various players in the trustscape.

Not wishing to take that chance, many trusts were cobbled together as the clock ticked toward midnight on December 31. Although the timing had an element of drama, the motivation was not new.
