Removing a Fiduciary in Texas

A fiduciary is anyone who has possession or control of someone else’s property. The someone else is referred to as the beneficiary. Who is a fiduciary? They include a trustee, an executor, an administrator, a holder of a power of attorney,etc. The fiduciary owes the beneficiary the highest duty recognized in law. He is liable for a breach of his duties. One of the liabilities that a fiduciary faces is removal as the fiduciary.

Let’s use an executor as an example. A person dies and leaves a will that names an executor. The executor starts administering the estate but is not forthcoming with the beneficiaries and starts to take actions that benefit the executor rather than the beneficiaries. One of the actions that the beneficiary can take is to ask the court to remove the executor and replace him.
