My wife has power and does financial transactions on behalf of trust
Estate Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 2 years ago
Ok, then if the trust grants her financial power to undertake transactions on behalf of the trust, then she could loan daughter the money for the house purchase and have daughter sign a Note and Mortgage agreeing to repay the trust for the loan. As for any interest, this would be negotiable between the parties, but there is no prohibition on the trust making an interest free loan to her if the trustee chose to do so. Trusts are entirely confidential and private documents, so no court would oversee the transaction. If interest was charged, then the trust would have to report this as income to it on any tax returns and pay any applicable income taxes..thanksBarrister
