I've been trying to find out why I would use a trust for property investment. So far all I can see is "asset Protection" but there's not much info on what the risk there is either. But my accountant is recommending using one. I'm interested in views on why I would need (or why its advisable) to use a trust. So far the only real beneficiary seems to be the accountant I have no dependents and have no intent on leaving "an estate" to anyone. Any pointers most welcome.
