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. Resulting trusts arise in a surprising number of situations, such as where an existing trust cannot carry on, for some reason. Then the trust property is said to be held on resulting trust.

This chapter discusses the two types of resulting trust; the automatic resulting trust; the theory of resulting trusts; presumed resulting trusts; the presumption of advancement; the importance of the presumptions today; and illegality.
