Thank you for your question.

If the property was placed into a trust then the trust will own the property. The trust is administered by the trustees. If your partner is the sole trustee then he is responsible for the trust and its property. He presumably can make the decisions about the property in the interests of the beneficiaries.

Happy to discuss further.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
