Confused about this topic and hope some of you can provide some information on this topic. 1. The Bare Trust is a legal document most likely drawn up by a legal professional? 2. I presume the wording should be standard for all bare trusts used to purchase say residential property in an SMSF? 3. When the document is drawn up and paid for is the document registered to show that it was drawn up at that time? 4. I've heard that stamp duty is payable on the establishment of the bare trust (in this case Vic). Is this correct. That's enough for now, I'll wait for some answers before posting more questions. Thanks!
