Trusts Precedents - Westlaw NZ


Brookers Trusts Precedents is a comprehensive collection of forms and precedents relating to the establishment, management and variation of trusts in New Zealand.

The precedents are logically organised and provide easily adaptable solutions to most problems and issues encountered by anyone who advises on or administers trusts.

As well as precedents for entire documents, the collection includes a number of useful additional clauses for variation of trust deeds. These include retirement on notice, variation of trust, onerous property, delegation, removal of trustees, and exercise of trustees’ powers.

Authored and maintained by a leading trust lawyer, Brookers Trusts Precedents is updated to ensure that the precedents continually conform to developments in case law, legislation and common practice.
