Who do I appoint as additional trustee(s)?

As the word suggests, a trustee should be someone you trust. For example, your partner, spouse, another family member, a close friend, or your family solicitor. Trustees must be over 18, mentally able and must not be bankrupt.

Trustees should sign the trust form to acknowledge their appointment. In accepting the appointment, trustees must carry out certain obligations and duties. The position shouldn’t be taken lightly.
