Unfortunately, the answer is "that depends". As a beneficiary, you have certain rights. It sounds like you're referring to a decedent's (dead person's) trust where you will receive some distribution. If you want to be sure that you are receiving everything to which you are entitled and that the successor trustee is doing that which he is required to do, it wouldn't hurt to have an attorney review the trust and oversee the successor trustee's duties. It would not be particularly expensive to hire an attorney to advise you on this, especially if you expect to receive a distribution. It's literally a small price to pay.

Maybe. I suspect you have received statutory notice required under probate code. You have right to copy of trust. I advise you to review the trust and all correspondence you have with trust counsel of your choice.
So - what is the problem??? That's a good thing.

Sounds to me like all is going well so far in your role as a Trust beneficiary. Of course, this depends upon a few factors such as when the Trust settlor (creator of the trust) passed away. If you have some doubts or simply need general counseling about how the Trust administration process works, you could obtain an Initial Consultation with a local attorney. You can get your initial questions answered and establish a relationship with local counsel in the event things go south or delay. Then it would be a good idea to retain an attorney.
