My solicitor. I have an email from them saying we wouldn't need a professional trustee if we didn't want one but that they could be it if we did. As soon as I said, no, we won't go ahead with one, they then said we had to have one. They then produced some legal quote which stated, in most instances, a professional trustee would be required.
We weren't threatened but were basically held to ransom over it as if the trust wasn't set up, my daughter couldn't get the money. I suppose coerced was the wrong term to use then.
Yes, in an email
