This chapter, which examines some of the important exceptions to the rule that the court has no jurisdiction over trusts in Great Britain, explains the very limited extent to which the courts may permit a deviation from the terms of the trust under its inherent jurisdiction and the more general exception under the Variation of Trusts Act 1958. It also considers statutory exceptions to duty not to deviate from the terms of trust, and exceptions that allow beneficiaries to act together and consent to free the trustees from any liability and even bring the trust to an end.
