I have not contacted the law office as not sure name now as it was 25 years ago
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

ok.

we this is the first step that needs to be done, before a resolution is passed to implement a new trust deed.

you can replace the trustee deed, but the ABN and other details must remain the same.

Would you like to discuss this matter on the telephone ? I have extended a special offer to you if you prefer.
