Disabled Person's Trust
My daughter is physically disabled and her daughter, my granddaughter, has autism and will always need support they both have the highest ESA and the highest rate of PIP both components. My estate is under the IHT threshold at the moment however, it will gain over the next few years, either a house or the money to purchase a house will be part of my estate and my wishes are to make sure they have a house to live in for the rest of their lives, money to maintain the property will be provided also. Can I make a Disabled persons Trust in my Will for both of them? Can I make my daughter one of the trustees and would I just say in my Will that when my daughter dies the entire estate will be my granddaughters? Or would the trust have to be wrapped up and another one set up? Thanks in advance for any and all help!
