About the Event

This On Demand was recorded on 6 September 2016.

The agreements entered into by home buyers when purchasing their first property can take a variety of forms. Very often, the complexities behind the financial and other arrangements are over-looked with real potential for unseen consequences arising later.

This On Demand seminar considers some of the options available to first home buyers (including the possible use of trusts) and provides insights into some of the issues that may become apparent only later.

It will also cover the conflicts of interest that can arise when advising clients, and the relationship property concerns that need to be dealt with from the start.

Learning outcomes

  • Learn more about the options available to first-time home buyers including loans or gifts from parents and buying together with friends as well as what agreements will be needed to safe guard interests in each case.
  • Understand better the way trusts can be used, either as a source of funds or as a vehicle of ownership to overcome the difficulties facing first-time buyers.
  • Gain insights into the potential for conflicts of interest that exist when advising the parties involved, the care that needs to be taken in respect of relationship property issues and how it is necessary to balance the interests of all children when parents provide assistance.

Who should view?

All property, trust and family lawyers as well as general practitioners who deal with work of this nature from time to time.
