This chapter examines the duties and powers of trustees. It considers how trustees can be appointed to and removed from office. It explains that trustees have a wide variety of powers but misuse of these powers will constitute a breach of trust. It also highlights the fact that, while trustees have the primary rights of ownership in trust property, they are not able to exploit the beneficial incidents of this ownership for themselves in their capacity as trustees, since they hold the property for other people or sometimes for particular purposes. This chapter also discusses the essence of trusteeship, the different types of trustees, and payment to trustees.
