Deed of Gift

A legal document for recording a gift of money.

by Dawsons Lawyers

About this document

Sometimes we give people money with no expectation or desire to be repaid. Sometimes we wipe off a debt by saying we’ll just gift them the money they would have owed. In these cases, it’s a good idea to formalise the gift by signing a Deed of Gift.

This document is primarily for use in trust situations where a Settlor wishes to gift off either all or part of a debt owed by their Trust.

You’ll need to know

  • the name of the Trust
  • the details of the trustees, and
  • details of any acknowledgement of debt signed to date.

Interview length

You should have your customised deed of gift in less than 5 minutes.
