To add a new Trustee is relatively simple. The appointment can be made verbally or in writing; preferably in writing. The appointment is made by a 62% majority vote of the Unit Holders. Generally the appointment is in the form of a Trust deed because a Trust deed is a more legally binding document. The additional Trustee must when accepting the appointment undertake to carry out the duties of Trustee and discharge the obligations contained in the Trust deed and at law.
