Trust Disputes

Spread the love

Whether you have a dispute with a Trustee, or are a Trustee who is being pursued by a Beneficiary, Blacks Solicitors’ expert Contentious Probate team can help. 

The law relating to Trusts can be complex and it is vital for Trustees to understand their legal obligations and for Beneficiaries to understand their rights.

Trusts are established as a means of passing control of assets to Trustees to manage for the benefit of the chosen Beneficiaries. They can be established during the donor’s lifetime or by a Will.

The Deed of Trust, or Will, sets out the terms of the Trust and how it should be administered. Unfortunately though, disputes can often arise and it is important that you obtain professional advice.

We can advise you on all Trust related disputes including:

  • Issues regarding the administration or distribution of the Trust
  • Disputes with or between Trustees
  • Applications to remove and/or replace Trustees
  • Variation of Trusts
  • Disputes with or between Beneficiaries
  • Interpretation of ambiguous Trust terms

Whatever your circumstances, we can discuss the options available to you and guide you through the legal processes involved.
