This is the problem in having trustees on a piece of property, who are individuals. Individuals are not immortal. This
That’s why many trustees are trust companies because it’s much easier to transfer the trust company shares and directorship in the event that one of the executor trustee shareholder directors dies.
If Co-operative Trust Manchester dealt with the estate, then it’s up to them to resolve this issue. If they don’t now how to deal with it, then they need to find out how to deal with it!
However what you are saying is that the land registry have said that “it must be done by the nearest relative of the last surviving trustee”
Whilst I hear what you say, if it is the surviving trustee, that means the one that left behind and is still alive, not the trustee that has died.
It does seem remarkably odd that they are asking for the nearest relative of the last surviving trustee because I would have thought that it was the nearest relative of the deceased trustee.
If you have been trying to deal with all this on the telephone, I can tell you that you will be wasting your time.
The personal representatives of the trustee that died is either his closest relative or the Co-operative trust.
