Hello, and thank you for your question. I am your Expert and I will provide the answer you require.
1. The solution here is to remove the trustee. Under the Trustee Act a trustee can be removed for defaulting on their obligations. So, your fellow trustee can be removed for failing to sign off on a transfer of money to a beneficiary of the trust. Initially, you should get a solicitor to write a letter calling upon them to resign on the basis they are neglecting to fulfil their duty. Then, if they won't resign, you should initiate legal proceedings to make them resign. The proceedings would be in the Circuit Court and will be granted for the asking with the defaulting trustee required to pay legal costs.
