David Wilde, ‘Valid trust declarations over property not owned by the settlor or over unascertainable property’

ABSTRACT
It seems to be widely believed that settlors can never make valid declarations of trust over property that, at the time of the declaration, they do not own; or which is unascertainable then. It is argued that this is a misconception: arising from a failure to distinguish between (1) rules applicable to self-declarations of trust and (2) rules applicable to declarations of trust to be constituted by vesting title to property in others as trustees.
