David F. Johnson, lead writer for the Texas Fiduciary Litigator blog, will address beneficiaries requesting loans from trustees. There are multiple issues that arise regarding the trustee’s authority to do so under the trust’s language and statutory and common law, and the loan’s impact on duties of loyalty, confidentiality, impartiality, and proper management of a trust’s assets. The presentation will also cover due diligence and other practical considerations in documenting the loan as well as alternatives to decrease a trustee’s risk when facing these types of lending transactions.
