Breach of Trust

Breach of Trust in the real estate investment industry typically refers to a situation where an individual or organization fails to fulfill their duties or obligations as per a trust agreement.

In real estate, trusts are commonly used for holding properties or investments. A trustee is designated and is obligated to manage the trust’s assets according to the terms outlined in the trust agreement. Their actions should be in the best interest of the beneficiaries, who are the individuals or entities that stand to benefit from the trust.

If the trustee fails to fulfill these obligations, perhaps by mismanaging the trust’s assets, acting in their own self-interest, or disregarding the terms of the trust agreement, this would be considered a breach of trust. This is a serious issue that can lead to legal consequences, as it undermines the purpose of the trust and can cause financial harm to the beneficiaries.
