The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
May I confirm a couple of points with you please:
thank you. I will try to reach on the phone now...
Further to our telephone conversation, you may wish to contact the firm that you have been dealing with and ask the individual how he has lawfully prepared the trust deed that he has provided you with is preparation of the trust instrument is a reserved legal activity under the legal services act and it is a breach of the act to do so unless you are a regulators barrister or solicitor. It constitutes a criminal offence to prepare a trust deed without regulation.
If he is unable to explain to you how he has produced the trust deed, and the only lawful expedition would be that he has subcontracted the matter to a regulated law firm in which case you must be able to deal with outdoor fun directly, then he has committed a criminal offence and this may be a basis upon which you can ask for all of your money back or threatened to report the matter to the solicitors regulation authority will consider prosecution.
In addition, this can serve as a basis for suing him for the return of monies in relation to the preparation of the trust deed, because if he lacks the legal authority to prepare one, it follows that he cannot charge you for preparing the same.
I'm glad the above answers all your questions. If there is anything else I can help with please reply back to me otherwise thank you very much for visiting JustAnswer and I hope we will see you again in the future.
