Trust Series 2022 - The Trusts Act - one year on


Case law up-date, practical considerations and variations to address the Trusts Act

The Trusts Act 2019 came into full force and effect on 30 January 2021. This webinar considers what we have learned over the passing year.

Topics covered will include:

  • Recap on the Trusts Act
  • Variation to reflect the Trusts Act
  • Variation pursuant to the Trusts Act
  • Appointment and removal of trustees under the Trusts Act with consideration given to the transitional provisions
  • The presumption regarding notification of basic trust information and giving information on request
  • Adviser obligations
  • Directions under the Trusts Act
  • Trust audits, and
  • An overview of cases under the Trusts Act including:
    • Re Hugh Green Trusts; Covich v Barbarich (directions)

    • Camroc Lewis Trust v Lewis (transitional provisions regarding vesting of trust assets)
    • Taylor v Taylor, Nyhoff v Atkins (removal of trustees)

Trust law is a dynamic and changing landscape – and perhaps never more so than now. This webinar canvasses the practical realities of trustee duties, trust administration and managing trust disputes under the Trusts Act.


Attendees will learn:

  • The fundamentals of the Trusts Act
  • How to advise clients about trusts in light of the Trusts Act
  • Key aspects of trust governance regarding the mandatory and default duties, trust information, core trust documents and disclosable information
