Well, if that happens the the Code of Alabama in Section 19-3B-704 has an answer to that and it states, in relevant part to the Trusts we draft, as follows:
Vacancy in trusteeship; appointment of successor.
(a) A vacancy in a trusteeship occurs if:
(1) a person designated as trustee rejects the trusteeship;
(2) a person designated as trustee cannot be identified or does not exist;
(3) a trustee resigns;
(4) a trustee is disqualified or removed;
(5) a trustee dies; or
(6) a guardian or conservator is appointed for an individual serving as trustee.
(b) If one or more co-trustees remain in office, then a vacancy in a trusteeship need not be filled. A vacancy in a trusteeship must be filled if the trust has no remaining trustee.
(c) A vacancy in a trusteeship of a noncharitable trust that is required to be filled must be filled in the following order of priority:
(1) by a person designated in the terms of the trust to act as successor trustee;
(2) by a person appointed by unanimous agreement of the adult qualified beneficiaries and any entity which is a qualified beneficiary; or
(3) by a person appointed by the court…
(f) If a person is acting as the sole trustee of a trust and if there is no provision in the trust for a successor trustee, then the sole trustee and the adult qualified beneficiaries, by unanimous written agreement, may designate a successor trustee, which shall become trustee of the trust upon the vacancy in the trusteeship. The agreement may be recorded in the probate court or filed in the records of the trust.
(g) Whether or not a vacancy in a trusteeship exists or is required to be filled, the court may appoint an additional trustee or special fiduciary whenever the court considers the appointment necessary for the administration of the trust.
