We are acting for the Beneficiaries of a poorly administered Trust which we would like to wind up. The surviving Trustee is willing to cooperate in this.
The co-Trustee died in 2006 and had (wrongly) transferred trust shares into their own name. The estate of the co-trustee was wound up by persons unknown without a Grant (the trustee was a 99 year old life tenant with no family and with few if any other means) but the shares were overlooked. The share registrars will not deal without a grant. Can anyone advise on the correct course of action or advice on the type of grant we should obtain? We have no other information about the deceased’s assets and know only of the shareholding.
