In adding a Trustee you have to read through the Trust document to see if there are any specific provisions about appointing new Trustees. It might give power to a certain person to be able to appoint or change the Trustees and, if so, this will need to be followed. However, if there are no specific provisions or the person nominated in the Trust document is unable or unwilling to act then the general rules regarding appointment are set out in the Trustee Act 1925. This states that the other remaining Trustees can appoint a replacement or additional Trustees.
You need to fill out the Deed of Appointment of Additional Trustee(s). I will send you the link where you can get a copy of it.
Is there anything else I can help with today?
