I've gotten into a bad situation with two property purchases in a resources related area that have dropped in value significantly. Over the years, I've gotten myself into a knot with an over complicated structure (multiple trusts). Part of me working my way out of the woods is to move away from the trusts (by either selling or getting things into my own name). My previous Accountant looked into moving the properties into my own name without incurring stamp duty (on the basis of 'un-complicating' my structure and the financial mess I've managed myself into). The conclusion was this was not possible. Is it possible for me to sell a property from a Family Trust into my own name (and pay the stamp duty obviously)? This still might be the way to go even with paying stamps.
