Trusts remain as topical as ever, notwithstanding, and in part due to the Trusts Act coming into full force and effect.
Sometimes issues arise inexplicably as was the case in O’Dea v Rutten.
 Let me deal with the core issue straight away. I do not understand how the executors could ever have reached the view that they apparently did.
