    It is not uncommon for will makers to want to lock trust property away from some beneficiaries until they are older and (hopefully) more sensible. However, will drafters need to be careful to avoid the application of the rule in Saunders v Vautier, which could see the trust being busted early.

It will also touch on the potentially significant problems that neglecting to specify a vesting age can cause and will canvass solutions.
