Who has told you that you need a deed of trust?

What is the urgency?

What is the problem?

Normally, the property is in your name, you would create a tenancy agreement in the name of a limited company and the limited company created tenancy agreement in the name of the ultimate tenant.

You would therefore be head landlord.

I need to what the problem is here because it would be remiss of me to simply give you a deed of trust blindly, if it isn’t the appropriate document.

I’m happy to give you a blank one but to be honest unless you are used to drafting deeds of trust, it will mean very little because the operative provisions are bespoke.
