Pitt and another v Holt and another; Futter and another v Futter and Others – WLR Daily

Posted March 14th, 2011 in financial advice, law reports, taxation, trusts by sally
“Where trustees, acting within their powers, carried out a transaction which was said to be vitiated by breach of trust on the ground that the trustees failed to have regard to a relevant matter, and where the reason that they did not have regard to it was that they had obtained and acted on advice from apparently competent advisers which turned out to be incorrect, then the charge of breach of trust could not be made out and the transaction was not voidable.”
