Administration of Estates

Trustees are often appointed by a settlor of a private or charitable trust and can have roles and responsibilities that can take the form of bare trustees, custodian trustees and advisory trustees. The role of a trustee is one of importance because it compels or prohibits anyone who holds that role from acting a certain way, and is a reflection of the fiduciary relationship between a trustee and beneficiary. There are certain duties that must be fulfilled by trustees and any breach is treated seriously which can then lead to the removal of a trustee.

If you are a beneficiary, or alternatively a trustee who has an issue with another person holding the position, there are certain legal avenues that you are able to pursue and if you need any assistance with your matter, please seek the help of a lawyer via FindLaw no matter where in Australia you are.
