Titles in the Complete series combine extracts from a wide range of primary materials with clear explanatory text to provide readers with a complete introductory resource. This chapter examines the different types of trust, how they are used, and the nature of a trust. The many uses of trusts in the modern world, from pensions to the ownership of the family home and the preservation of family wealth are explained. The discussions cover the meanings of trust and property; what trusts are used for; what an equitable interest is; classification of trusts; resulting trusts; constructive trusts; implied trusts; Quistclose-type trusts; and wills and intestacies.
