(a) If the terms of the trust do not specify the trustee's compensation, the trustee
or any qualified beneficiary, or representative of a qualified beneficiary, may initiate
a proceeding under Article 2 of Chapter 36C of the General Statutes for review of
the reasonableness of any compensation or expense reimbursement and for the approval
or denial of the payment of compensation or expense reimbursement. A beneficiary may initiate a proceeding even though the 20-day period referred to
in G.S. 32-56(2) has expired.
(b) In connection with reviewing the reasonableness of any compensation or expense
reimbursement, the clerk of superior court may order the trustee to make appropriate
refunds if the clerk determines upon review that a trustee has received excessive
compensation or expense reimbursement.
