Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good morning, thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear of your situation. Yes, you are entitled to know who the trustees are, because, as you say, you may wish to request their removal, but also simply as an upfront measure of keeping the beneficiaries informed.
No, initially you need to put a complaint to them and advise if the situation continues you will be taking steps to seek their removal. What kind of Trust is it, do you know?
Yes that's fine, sometimes if it is a Discretionary Trust then the beneficiaries are not entitled to a lot of information.
Do you have any further questions?
No, it I was not calling it a discretionary trust I was just using that as an example. If you are the only beneficiary with an interest then you can just ignore my question.
I would be surprised if the Trustees are legal assistants, do you have a copy that I can see please, I think perhaps they are the witnesses.
Oh ok, so you are fine, just remember that theyare professional trustees so you can contact them.
You can ask them to retire otherwise you will have to go to court to have them removed.
What changes would you expect to occur? If they constantly contact you they need to charge you. They have to consider the ultimate beneficiaries as well.
The trustees should be dealing with tenants.
Appoint your own people for what, as Trustees or solicitors?
As I said your first step is to write to them and ask them to urgently retire, who are the end beneficiaries once your life interest ends?
then if they are adults they all need to make the request with you.
Yes, the choice or removal of trustees affects all of the beneficiaries.
there is a huge backlog of work at the moment at the land registry, applications are taking several months.
Not really - also it is not a huge priority if staff are furloughed etc.
Please contact me if you have any further questions, I will close this thread for now.
