Following on from Richard Williams’article, it has recently been raised with the General Editors, by estate planning professionals, that estate proceeds trusts (EPTs) can be utilised to establish a trust where a will has not done so. The suggestion being that this is a means to rectify an oversight by a testator who has omitted to incorporate a testamentary discretionary trust (TDT) in the will and a cheaper mechanism than an application for a statutory will.
