When creating a trust agreement, the maker of the trust (also referred to as the “grantor”, “settlor” or “trustor”), will need to name one or more successor trustees. In some cases, the trustee, and the successor trustee(s) will be unable, or unwilling to serve. The trustee’s role is to manage and distribute trust assets in accordance with the trust maker’s wishes. In some cases, the trustor may prefer a non-family member to serve as trustee. In other cases, the trustee or the successor trustee(s) may not wish to serve and another fiduciary needs to take over those responsibilities. In some cases, it may be necessary to appoint a trustee on a temporary basis, until a permanent replacement can be identified.
