What gets missed, in the excitement and enthusiasm of Overseas Property Investment is the exit strategy if something goes wrong. 

6 Reasons to Make a Will Trust to Protect Overseas Property Investment


1.    Make a Will and Trust your family and friends to protect your assets on death. 

2.    A Family Trust avoids local laws of succession. By creating a Family Trust today for Overseas Property Investment you could also make tax savings in capital gains, inheritance tax and property transfer taxes.

3.    The country in which your dream Overseas Property Investment is located could have different Laws of Succession to your home country.  This may limit beneficiaries to blood relatives: this includes spouse and your own children.

4.    This may exclude step children, and in-laws.  Although a widow (gender neutral!) could inherit on first death from a 2nd marriage spouse, and then pass to their own blood children on second death.

5.    The widow may also be required to share a large proportion of overseas property investment or home on first death.  If your priority is to financial support your spouse on first death review and Make a Will.

6.    Normally gifts of Overseas property to Family can be Inheritance Tax and Transfer Tax Free.
