Certain actions must be taken when a trustee is appointed or retired.
When a trustee is appointed or retires, certain actions need to be taken to ensure the trust property, along with all the duties and responsibilities, effectively transfer to the new and continuing trustees, enabling proper administration of the trust. As a retiring trustee you may also want to ensure that you are sufficiently indemnified for any losses caused by the continuing and new trustees going forward or that come to light in the future.
The specific actions may vary depending on the terms of the trust and any applicable laws or regulations, but these are general steps to consider:
It is important to note that the retiring trustee should act in accordance with their fiduciary duties and obligations until the transition is complete. Open communication and cooperation between the retiring trustee, the successor trustee and the beneficiaries are key to ensuring the continuity and proper administration of the trust.
It is advisable to seek professional advice from a solicitor or legal expert experienced in trust matters to ensure that the appointment or retirement process is carried out correctly and in compliance with legal requirements.
