Contact the Attorney or whomever Legally drew up the Trust. * The attorney will not give out such information. If the trustee refuses to supply the beneficiaries with a copy of the trust or the information that is sought, the interested party will need to petition the probate court for a copy of the document.

Two sisters inherit a home that deceased parents left them in a trust My own home is into foreclosure is there a way I can force sister to borrow off the beach house to buy me out?

What power does a trustee have over real estate My father left me his home in his will and left my brother as trustee over the inheritance What privileges does this give my brother?

He has to abide by the laws in the State you are in and that includes what the Will declares. If you are to get the house then you get the house. Usually Wills are probated to be sure that all personal/property taxes are paid off and this includes all creditors are paid in full. What is left is called "Residue of the Estate." You also have a right to a copy of the Will and if your brother refuses to give you one, then get a lawyer and demand one.

How can you find out if your trustee is taking monies from the trust account?

There should always be provisions that the trustee must provide periodic accountings to the trustor and the beneficiaries. There should be at least annual accountings where the trustee must account for every cent coming into the trust and every cent going out. If the trustee refuses then you should petition the court to compel the trustee to provide an accounting ASAP.

Does the trustee who is your sibling have to provide the beneficiary with a copy of parents trust?

Yes. You should be able to review the trust. You can also ask for a regular accounting so that you can monitor the trustee's management of the trust property. If the trustee refuses you can file a motion in a court of equity to compel an inventory and accounting. You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options.

What if a trustee of an irrevocable trust is not being truthful about funds being spent can the trustee be removed?

The trustee should be required to file an account every year that can be reviewed by the beneficiaries of the trust. They have an interest in both the trust property and that the trustee not waste, misuse or steal any of the trust assets. If the trustee is being secretive then the trust should be reviewed for any provision that address the removal of the trustee and the appointment of a successor. If there are no such provisions IN the trust document, a petition should be brought to a court of equity. A judge can appoint a new trustee. Any trustee who refuses to be accountable to the beneficiaries is not "trustworthy".

If one sibling filed chapter 7 and there is property that is left by your deceased parents but no succession has been filed by your siblings can a trustee sell the property to pay creditors?

Only that property that is determined to be owned by the sibling. If property is owned jointly between the sibling and the remaining family, the remaining family may be forced to get a loan to pay the appraised value of the siblings share. As this Q is frequently referred to by those asking about a trustee that is a sibling.....a trustee is NOT the owner of any of the proerty he is trustee fact, IT CANNOT be used for his personal needs.

If a trustee who is also one of 7 other beneficiaries of the trust dies before any trust assets are distributed what happens to the part of the trust that was to go to the trustee this is in Calif?

You need to review the trust document for the answer to your question. It should contain a provision for distribution of the share of a deceased beneficiary. If the trustee has died a new trustee needs to be appointed to make the distribution. The trust document should also have provisions for the appointment of a successor trustee.

No you do not. The next person in the list on your Grandmother's trust document steps in as the successor trustee. Powers of attorney are invalid once the principal has died. Your mother's Power of Attorney (which has expired) has nothing to do with your Grandmother's trust.

You are the successor trustee of your deceased mother's estate in California Are you responsible for her credit card debt?

No, you are not PERSONALLY liable for your mother's debts.

Creditors must file a claim against the estate to be paid, and state laws dictate the time limit for filing such claims.
