Part I Introduction, 1 Introduction
- Performance of contract
This introductory chapter discusses the administrative and protective jurisdiction of the Court to supervise and intervene in trust administration to facilitate the due performance of trusts within what is called ‘the supervisory jurisdiction over trust administration’. The principle that justifies the constituent aspects of the supervisory jurisdiction over trust administration is that the Court acts to facilitate the performance of trusts and thereby reasonably ensure their due administration. The chapter then offers an outline of each succeeding chapter to support the claim about the importance of performance as a unifying principle within this area of trust law. It also presents ancillary principles that guide the exercise of the supervisory jurisdiction for the benefit of, or in the best interests of, the beneficiaries.
