losed them for your perusal. It says that the garage is in trust for me, when i told them it was to be in trust for my daughters. I did not notice this at the time and just signed the document as there was many other things going on at the time and as you will be aware i was representing myself in court with a lot of paperwork all over me can the legal aid board cancel my legal aid because of this or what other action can they take . Ultimately the garage is owned by the offshore company

Not sure how this helps. The document is a terms of business letter. It isn't evidence of the trust or what property is held in trust for what beneficiary. Is that the document you intended to upload?

Dear Mr McGoff,

Having looked into this and discussed matters with you on the phone today it seems that there has been a some miscommunication between yourself and us.

We had drafted the title in favour of Safeguard and stated it was to be held in trust for you, rather than your daughters.

We trust this will be of assistance to you.

Kind Regards,

Martine Bisiaux

I don't have the second page of the first attachment. Can you let me have it please. It may be the new system but I certainly haven't got it. I have the third document being Martine's email.

Thanks, ***** ***** this now. Thanks for doing that. What is your specific question on this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Does the legal aid board have any reason to atop my legal aid they said I have this garage in trust for me but I do not own it and the letter confirms there was a mistake I have no interest in this

Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
You should let them see the letter and also arrange for the title to be changed to what was originally intended. Clearly if you have property, even in trust, by mistake, then it should be taken into account. In addition the fact that it is in trust means that you don't have access to it not could you raise money over it so, typically, it should be taken into account anyway.
