My Great aunt left a revocable trust with a successor trustee. She passed away Dec 2010. no communication with the beneficiary's from trustee, and/or any copies of trust or compliance with beneficiary's at all. Beneficiary's all agree to petition courts, can we have her removed? or should we petition for the court to look over the situation? We don't want to tie it up longer, but also we want to be aware of how she is handling the estate, and why the beneficiary's are not informed. The trust states trustee can be removed. also the trust was kept out of probate. we are just confused on how to proceed, it has been 18 months with no communication. All the beneficiary's are in agreement of doing what has to be done to protect there shares.The copy of the trust was picked up from the lawyer who did the trust, about a month ago. We always knew we were benificiary's, and the trust states what shares each benificiary would receive. The lawyer had no further information, the successor trustee is not using an attorney. The trust has real estate and assets to be divided into shares to 13 benificiarys. Including the successor trustee. The trust does not give an amount of assets only states that under 25 yrs of age can only receive $100,000 until their 25th birthday unless for school etc. the trust is known to be in the several millions, the trustee is say she " is fixing up an old house" which is not agreed upon by the benificiarys
