I would like to know if a person named as a
trustee can be taken off
Can you be more specific please.
Taken of as trustee/executor of what (a will? or a trust?) and by who and is the will writer alive or dead?
I am an executor of my late mothers will so are my brother and sister who I don't have anything to do with I do not want to be a part of it at all
They don’t need to be removed but need to relinquish their position.
You will need a solicitor to draw up some document and they need to sign them and you can go on as sole executor.
Depending on the wording of the will it may not be necessary, but can make your job easier as you don't need to worry about the possibility of somebody second guessing your decisions.
