My sister is trustee on my mother’s trust. She thought she could give me house because I was the oldest of my siblings. Is that true? Now I don’t think that’s true because I have a lot of siblings that are beneficiaries on the living trust.
ANSWER BY MARGARET CROSS-BELIVEAU:
Distributions from the trust are governed by the terms of the trust. The Trustee should consult an attorney to determine if she is following its terms.
