Hi gingernut
 
If the Trustee fees that you are not providing them with all the information they need to make a decision about your assets or income then yes, they are allowed to request information about third parties accounts. They can take legal action to achieve this if necessary. Normally they would do this if they feel you are not co-operating with them and they suspected that a third party was holding money for you which you have not told them about or that someone who is living with you has a larger income than you have admitted thus their share of the household expenses has not been correctly calculated.
