Example: Resulting Trust

Show on page(s): 

Suppose that S creates a trust, transferring some property to T for life, providing that the income is to be paid to A for life, and there is no provision paid for any remainder. If this transfer were not in the form of a trust, there would be a reversion to the settlor. The same thing as a “reversion” occurs in equity, except we say there is a "resulting trust.”
