Step Provisions “Release of Powers”

Hello Trust Discussion Forum

Step Provisions “Release of Powers”

STEP Provisions 1 Clause “(3)21 Release of Powers

The Trustees may by deed release any of their powers wholly or in part so

as to bind future trustees.”

I note the wording appears to be exactly the same in STEP Provisions 2 Clause 4.17

Trying to work out what powers this Clause allows the Settlor and current Trustees to prevent/limit future trustees from using that are in the Trust deed?

What Trustee Powers does this extend to?
Overriding Powers, powers of appointment, and express advancement?
or Administrative powers?
If the trust deed allows a wide variation of provisions can changes to provisions be limited by the release of powers?

thank you
