Ala. Code 19-3B-1013 outlines the requirements for a certification of trust in the State of Alabama.

When acquiring property in the name of a trust or transferring property to a trust, the bank or escrow company approving the transfer requires confirmation of the trustee's authority to act. Instead of furnishing a copy of the original trust, which may contain personal information, a trustee can provide a document called a certification of trust, or trust certificate, to avoid disclosing personal information to someone who is not a beneficiary of the trust.

The certification of trust acts as evidence of the existing trust, and verifies the trustee's status to act on its behalf. According to the law, the recipient of the certification of trust may also require the trustee to furnish excerpts from the original trust and later amendments that designate the trustee and enumerate the trustee's powers. However, a certificate of trust is sufficient documentation to establish the trustee's liability for the existence of the facts contained in the certification.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

I like that the quit claim form was fill in the blank on my computer instead of online, made it so much easier than having to do everything at once, at the mercy of the internet connection. Will refer others here.

The process was easy going. The process is one thing, the results another. I have attempting to resolve this matter, of claiming sole ownership of the property for several YEARS. I lost my Bride of 65 years in 2015. A lawyer I hired failed in his attempt, so I'm waiting to see the actual results.
I also have two parcels in New Mexico under the same situation, so if this is successful, I'll gladly be back. Thank You so very much. Don Martin

My E-deed was not excepted by the county, so I had to snail mail the documents to the recorders office. Will probably not use this site again, as it did not fulfill my purpose, but would recommend to those who do not have complicated forms.

I really appreciate your forms according to South Dakota laws and statues. Your forms allow me to effectively do estate planning without extensive legal expenses. The "Revocable Transfer of Death Deed" is perfect to protect against extensive probate problems for seniors in retirement.

Thank you and May God Bless.

This site was recommended by my County's Clerks office website. Let me tell you when I received my specific State and County's Quit Claim Deed forms from Deeds.com, every conceivable form that could be needed in addition to the full instructions, and a sample filled out form, I was impressed (five stars) and made things so easy for me to feel confident in my legal activity on a land transaction.

I found your site easy to use, though I would prefer an option to download to MWords but Adobe works well. The cost is very, very reasonable and provides documents I didn't know were needed. I would recommend this to anyone trying to deal with legal documents.

I am really impressed by this website. Not only is it affordable, but they give a detailed description, instructions, and an example to follow. Also there are additional forms included. And it's State, even county, specific. They do not require a subscription either as you can just order what you want. Thank you!

I'm very happy with your service! It saved me, at least, hundreds of dollars vs. going through a lawyer in a different state.

I had to download forms one by one: would be more convenient to have a single download for all.
