This document is a template appointor consent form.
For the discretionary trust, the appointor is the person who is able to remove the trustee and appoint a new trustee of the trust, thus having absolute control over the trust.
Any changes to the trust deed require the appointor’s consent. In most cases, it must be done by a deed signed by both the trustee and the appointor (see “Deed amending trust deed where appointor consent is required”).
However, some trust deeds provide for certain amendments to be done with a simple consent form received from the appointor.
You should check the provisions of the trust deed and if unsure, use the “Deed amending trust deed where appointor consent is required” instead.
For template trust deeds, see precedents “Unit trust deed” and “Deed establishing discretionary trust”.
For template deed amending trust deed, see precedent “Deed amending trust deed where appointor consent is required”.
