Thanks for the reply, very informative. I have heard many people recommend putting your own property into a trust to protect it from any personal lawsuits etc. So can you have a mutli-tiered trust structure?
eg The scenario I was thinking would be something along the lines of the following:

Entity A – An individual with owner occupied property
Entity B – A family trust
Entity C – Another trust
Entity D – A company

The assets from entity A are transferred to entity B
Entity B controls entity C and owns D
Entity C owns commercial property and leases to entity D
Entity A remains a beneficiary of entity B

Does that make sense and is that the general gist of how such a scenario should be administered to maximise protection and income distribution?
