    leave her squat/ in trust

    Dear teachers,


    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?


    Her father didnít leave her squat. The kidís got money in trust from her grandfather, but she canít touch that till her mother dies and Sandra seems to have the idea that Kelly ought to learn the value of a buck.

    leave someone squat = run away from someone; give someone the slip

    in trust = in the possession or care of a trustee,


    Thank you for your efforts.


    Regards,


    V

    in a trust = in a Trust Fund.

    That would be her inheritance from her grandfather but she cannot get the money until later.
