Change of Unitholder/Unitholding
Docscentre can prepare documents for simple changes in unitholders and/or unitholding in a unit trust for the transfer, redemption or issue of new units.
All unitholders must have consented to the change, and the applicable procedures as set out in the relevant trust deed must have been followed (or can be waived or varied by the unanimous consent of the unitholders).
The Docscentre in-house legal team will prepare the documents in accordance with your instructions. We do not need to see a copy of the deed.
Docscentre offers this service using our standard PDF forms. Please complete, scan and email the form to Docscentre.
Note: Changes in unitholding involving more complex procedures (including pre-emptive rights) may result in unintended consequences, and you should obtain external legal advice in order to make the change.
The Docscentre in-house legal team will prepare the documents based on your instructions.
If a new company will be a new unitholder, you’ll need to order that online first.
The Change of Unitholder and/or Unitholding documentation will be prepared in accordance with the change and will usually include:
- Resolution of Directors (if trustee is a company)
- Unitholders resolutions
- New unit certificate(s)
- Updated register of unitholders
- Instrument(s) of Transfer of units (if applicable)
- Application for Redemption (if applicable)
- Application for New units (if applicable)
You will receive electronic copies of the documents.
