Appointment of Successor Trustee for Revocable Trust: Settlor is Not Outgoing Trustee (Florida)

Contract template sketch
About this template
This legal template is specifically designed for the state of Florida under USA law, focusing on the appointment of a successor trustee for a revocable trust when the settlor (the person who established the trust) is not serving as the outgoing trustee.

In the context of estate planning, a revocable trust is a legal arrangement that allows an individual (the settlor) to transfer their assets into a trust during their lifetime. The settlor can typically act as the trustee and maintain control over the trust assets during their lifetime, while also designating a successor trustee to take over the management of the trust upon their incapacity or death.

However, in situations where the settlor is not able or willing to serve as the outgoing trustee, this template provides a standardized legal document to appoint a new trustee to assume control over the trust's administration. The appointment of a successor trustee ensures a smooth transition of trust management and the proper handling of the settlor's assets according to their wishes stated in the trust document.

This template would likely include important details such as the name and identification information of the revocable trust, the name and contact information of the outgoing trustee, and the designation of the successor trustee who will take over the trustee's responsibilities. It may also outline specific instructions, conditions, or limitations that the settlor wishes to impose on the successor trustee.

By utilizing this legal template, individuals in Florida can establish clear provisions for the appointment of a successor trustee in their revocable trusts, ensuring efficient trust administration and the protection of their assets in accordance with state laws.
