The role of an Appointor in a Discretionary Trust Deed or Family Trust is important as they have the power to decide who the trustee is in the deed. We often come across trust deeds for clients who are not sure who the Appointor is. It’s vital that you find out who is the nominated person and ensure they are the correct person to hold this position. If there’s someone appointed in the role that you do not want in that position, they can potentially change the trustee without any authority of the current trustee and then potentially get control of that trust. It’s extremely important to review the trust deed or get advice to make sure the correct person is appointed. If we can offer any advice for your situation please get in touch.
