Dear: Crown Law Office

As a beneficiary of the Cestui Que Vie Trust made in the name ; BEST, KARISSA or other variations such as, but not exclusive to Karissa BEST, KARISSA BEST, K C BEST, 74748279, 210899; I am requesting a copy of the trust deed and other documentations evidencing the trust and interests.
It is the fundamental right of a beneficiary to be able to ensure that a trust is administered lawfully and in accordance with its terms (Trustee Act 1956). It is my right as a beneficiary, with invested interest in this trust to be able to obtain a copy of the deed to ensure the fiduciary duties of the trustee have been adequately met.
Trustees are under a fiduciary duty to keep the beneficiaries informed about the trust and provide certain documentation.

The Courts have stated that, as a minimum, this will include:
• Documents evidencing the existence of the trust;
• Details of the beneficiary’s interest under the trust; and
• A copy of the trust documents (i.e. deeds, variations, accounts).

There is not good or fair reason to refuse disclosure of information about the trust.
I am thankful, and appreciative for your assistance on this matter and come with peaceful neutrality,

:Karissa-casey.
