Our lawyer sets up your trust and related transfers

We are a law office and our Principal lawyer, Jacques Vannoort (LLM), has many years of experience in the field of trusts. His specialisation in the setting up of trusts also extends to the running of trusts. He deals with clients in the Waikato, Auckland and Bay of Plenty areas.

  1. Our first step is to get to know your needs and circumstances and we then set up draft documents for your approval. Foremost for us in a trust is your control and protection of the trust assets and the flexibility of the trust.

2. Our second step, after the basic trust documents are in place, is to sell or gift your assets into the trust. Gifting of those assets/resulting debts, fully or partly, is done to allow you more control over the trust assets.

3. Next, and co-ordinating with your bank if a mortgage is present, we change ownership of the assets by means of title update at the Land Registry.

4. Finally all certified documents are presented to you in your personal trust suitcase. This also contains our video on how to run your trust and also your personal recorded wishes for the trust. Everything is saved on external drive and emailed to you. You will then have all the signed and certified original documents in hard copy and on file. We will also retain them and documents can therefore never get lost or be misplaced.

Jacques Vannoort LLM – Barrister & Solicitor

running a family trust can be simple !

Jacques has specialized in trust work for more than 25 years now in the Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions. He sees his trust clients regularly. They trust him to offer advice on many aspects of their trusts for their Businesses and Investments, through his team. He explains not only the use of trusts for his clients but also the process of transfer of assets, and how their trusts should be run as prudent trustees. He does not leave his clients to struggle on their own when the job is finished. You can always reach him for advice.

Jacques Vannoort – skills as winemaker

Jacques can often be found on his vineyard where he produces a humble wine. He firmly believes that a good wine can only be made when the winemaking process is well maintained and done regularly. Only after weeding, pruning, leafplucking, netting, timely picking of the grapes, strict hygienic fermentation, and appropriate bottling can a prudent winemaker be satisfied.

He applies the same principles to the setting up and the running of the Family Trusts set up for his clients.
