Family Home Trusts
made Simple and Online
If you have a house, an expanding family, or a growing property portfolio, then setting up a family trust will help to protect you and your family’s interests.
TrustUs have developed an easy way to set up your family home trust and wills online, with all the legal benefits of going to a trust lawyer, but without the delays. Setting up a family trust through TrustUs is quick, easy, and all without the hassle of leaving home.
Trusts are a way to safeguard your future, protecting your assets and helping to prevent any conflict over your family property or home.
New Zealanders set up family trusts to:
- Provide protection from creditors and any legal action
- Secure protection from matrimonial and relationship property disputes
- Gain control over what happens to assets in the event of their death
When you set up a trust through TrustUs your documents are ready to be signed in minutes.
Protect what matters to you now to secure the future of your loved ones.
