The deceased appointed a friend and his then fiancee as Executors and Trustees of the Will. He left cash gifts to his grandchildren (currently minors) on attaining 25 years and the residue to my client (currently 23) on attaining 25 years. The ex fiancee is hostile and lives in the USA. Through his Solicitor the friend is applying for Probate to the Estate in his sole name with power reserved. Any ideas as to how the trusts can be administered pending the beneficiaries attaining 25 years without applying to the Court for removal of the ex as Trustee (it’s a very modest estate). My client would welcome some funds before 2021.
