Nevada Guardianships; Conservatorships; Trusts
Sec. § 166A.290
Declination, resignation, incapacity, death or removal of custodial trustee; designation of successor custodial trustee.


1.

Before accepting the custodial trust property, a person designated as custodial trustee may decline to serve by notifying the person who made the designation, the transferor or the transferors legal representative. If an event giving rise to a transfer has not occurred, the substitute custodial trustee designated under NRS 166A.190 becomes the custodial trustee or, if a substitute custodial trustee has not been designated, the person who made the designation may designate a substitute custodial trustee pursuant to NRS 166A.190. In other cases, the transferor or the transferors legal representative may designate a substitute custodial trustee.

2.

A custodial trustee who has accepted the custodial trust property may resign by:

(a)

Delivering written notice to a successor custodial trustee, if any, the beneficiary and, if the beneficiary is incapacitated, to the beneficiarys conservator, if any; and

(b)

Transferring or registering, or recording an appropriate instrument relating to, the custodial trust property, in the name of, and delivering the records to, the successor custodial trustee identified under subsection 3.

3.

If a custodial trustee or successor custodial trustee is ineligible, resigns, dies or becomes incapacitated, the successor designated under subsection 7 of NRS 166A.180 or 166A.190 becomes custodial trustee. If there is no effective provision for a successor, the beneficiary, if not incapacitated, may designate a successor custodial trustee. If the beneficiary is incapacitated, or fails to act within 90 days after the ineligibility, resignation, death or incapacity of the custodial trustee, the beneficiarys conservator becomes successor custodial trustee. If the beneficiary does not have a conservator or the conservator fails to act, the resigning custodial trustee may designate a successor custodial trustee.

4.

If a successor custodial trustee is not designated pursuant to subsection 3, the transferor, the legal representative of the transferor or of the custodial trustee, an adult member of the beneficiarys family, the guardian of the beneficiary, a person interested in the custodial trust property or a person interested in the welfare of the beneficiary may petition the court to designate a successor custodial trustee.

5.

A custodial trustee who declines to serve or resigns, or the legal representative of a deceased or incapacitated custodial trustee, as soon as practicable, shall put the custodial trust property and records in the possession and control of the successor custodial trustee. The successor custodial trustee may enforce the obligation to deliver custodial trust property and records and becomes responsible for each item as received.

6.

A beneficiary, the beneficiarys conservator, an adult member of the beneficiarys family, a guardian of the person of the beneficiary, a person interested in the custodial trust property or a person interested in the welfare of the beneficiary may petition the court to remove the custodial trustee for cause and designate a successor custodial trustee, to require the custodial trustee to furnish a bond or other security for the faithful performance of fiduciary duties or for other appropriate relief.
