What is a declaration of trust?

A declaration, or deed, of trust is a legally binding document that typically sets out the financial arrangements between joint property owners and/or anyone else who has a financial interest in the property.

Deeds of trust are commonly used when individuals are buying a property together but are not contributing equally to the purchase price. They can be tailored to suit many different circumstances.
