Do decisions by trustees have to be unanimous?

My two siblings and I are trustees. Both of my brothers want to sell the family farm, I do not. Can they override my wishes?

Typically a Trust is governed by the Trust Agreement. You need to look at the specific wording for the “Trustee’s powers”. I’ve seen Trusts that require a majority and others where all decisions must be unanimous. You may want to contact the attorney who originally prepared the Trust Agreement.
