Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Could you be a little more specific as to the issue you are referring to, please? I look forward to hearing from you. Al
Hi, thanks for your reply. I am not familiar with whether sharia law is recognised in Trust law, so I will opt out and let a colleague answer you. Kind Regards Al
I see that the previous expert has opted out. Generally, the trustees have absolute discretion but they must act in the best interest of the beneficiaries. If they have done something which they should not have done or not done something which they should have done, and they will not resign voluntarily, then only a court application will remove and replace them. To do not replace trustees lightly and it is not a simple process to make the application.
Sharia Law is of no legal effect in the UK and hence for the purposes of the legalities, must be ignored.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Please don’t forget to rate the service positive. It is an important part of the process by which experts get paid.
Once your father has settled money on trust, your father no longer has control of it. It is then up to the trustees. They may listen to what he says in making their decisions but they are under no obligation to do anything except comply with the terms of the trust. So what you are saying is correct, it is the trustees that make the decision not your father.
