This is a trust you put in your will so that the surviving spouse can continue living in your property, but the deceased’s share of the property is kept separate.

Therefore others, most commonly children and loved ones can inherit after the surviving spouse’s death. It is important to remember that your motive for setting up a PPT (Protected Property Trust) should always be for proper estate planning requirements to ensure that your children or loved ones are taken care of once you are gone. It is not just about avoidance of care fees are this would not work.
