The trustee cannot impose new restrictions or terms on the beneficiary that do not exist in the trust.

(The trustee's belief of what the testator would have thought is irrelevant).

If the trustee continues to ignore the terms of the trust and refuses to execute the duties of the trust (make distributions to beneficiaries as required under the terms of the document), the beneficiary can file a claim against the trustee for "breach of fiduciary duty" and not only get a proper distribution from the trust, but the trustee can be held personally liable for intentional withholding from the trust.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
