If you set up the trust, check the trust documents to see if the rules allow you to remove trustees.
If you’re a joint-trustee or a beneficiary of the trust, sometimes you can remove a trustee using other legal provisions which will not usually be in the trust documents themselves. Talk to a solicitor about how to do this.
If the trust documents or other legal provision does allow you to remove trustees, you’ll need the right paperwork. You can get it from the solicitor or financial firm that manages the trust.
Usually, all it takes is signing an extra form. It might need to be signed by the trustee that you want to remove, but you might be able to remove them without their signature.
Remember, most trusts need at least two trustees – so if removing one trustee leaves you short, you’ll need to find another one.
Whatever your circumstances, it’s best to talk to a solicitor or the financial organisation that’s managing the trust.
