The trustee to the property we share a common wall has died. The beneficiary
of the trust that own the property and resides there refuses to allow us to enter the adjoining property to repair a damaged wall. This is in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. Without a listed or successor trustee what are our options?
JA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes but he is attempting to have a successor trustee appointed but we apparently have no standing with the trust because we are not beneficiaries of the trust
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: It is up for review by a judge. Can a judge direct a tenet beneficiary of a trust to grant access by necessity for repairs in the absence of a trustee?
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: We have the neighbor from hell
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
