Settlor has died, but prior to doing so (many months) signed a trust deed, but the co-trustee did not sign. Can the co-trustee now sign and validly take up his appointment?
If not, do the PR’s of the Settlor act as trustees, or can a beneficiary apply to be a trustee?
I believe the trust is valid on the basis that the settlor has signed the deed and treated the property as trust property. Any comments would be appreciated.
