Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.

Expert:  Debra replied 4 months ago.

Do you know if this trust is an absolute discretionary trust so that the trustee makes all the decisions?

And what did the Will say about upkeep for the house?

What happens when the person turns 61?

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!
