What is the Arizona Affidavit of Successor Trustee?

To transfer real property in a living trust from a trustee to a successor, the successor trustee executes and records an affidavit of successor trustee. The document contains sworn statements confirmed in the presence of a notary public, and provides notice that the successor has assumed the authority of the preceding trustee relevant to real property held in trust.

In addition to naming the affiant (the person making the sworn statements; in this case, the successor trustee), the affidavit contains the basic details about the trust for which the successor is assuming trusteeship, including its name, date, and settlor (person who created or contributed assets to the trust).

The form also requires information about the deed transferring the subject real property into trust, including the type and date of the deed, its location on record, and the grantee of the deed. The grantee is generally the preceding trustee who held title to the property. Because the affidavit confirms the successor's authority regarding the real property, the form also requires the legal description of said property. Further, the affidavit contains the details concerning the change in trusteeship.

It is not uncommon that an affidavit of successor trustee be referred to by a different name. For instance, an affidavit of death of trustee accomplishes the same task, but is obviously only useful when the preceding trustee has died. But what happens when the trustee has resigned, or another circumstance, such as removal, prevents the trustee from serving?

When a trust is served by multiple trustees and a vacancy occurs, the remaining co-trustees may act for the trust (14-10703(B)). However, Arizona statutes require a vacancy in individual trusteeship to be filled (and therefore, an affidavit of successor trustee to be recorded) in the following six cases: when a designated trustee rejects the trusteeship; when the designated trustee cannot be identified; when the trustee resigns; when the trustee is disqualified or removed; when the trustee dies; or when a guardian or conservator is appointed for an individual serving as a trustee (Ariz. Rev. Stat. 14-10704). Statutes provide the court with authority to appoint a trustee when "necessary for the administration of the trust," regardless of a vacancy ( 14-10704(E)).

A successor trustee may be designated in the original trust document (the instrument a settlor uses to establish a trust), or filled in the order provided for by statute: 1) by a person who is appointed by a person who has authority in the trust instrument to appoint a successor trustee; 2) by a person appointed by unanimous agreement of the qualified beneficiaries; and, finally, 3) by a person appointed by the court ( 14-10704(C)). (Note: this applies to noncharitable trusts only.)

Before recording in the county wherein the real property described in the affidavit is situated, the affiant must sign the document in the presence of a notary public. The form should adhere to content and formatting requirements for recording documents pertaining to interests in real property in the State of Arizona.

Review: Holy cow. I was told by several people that getting a deed recorded would take 7-10 days. So I thought I'd give a try with their e-filing service. I created my account and submitted my deed around 4:00 p.m. and it was recorded before I woke up the next morning. Awesome service! Totally worth the $19 service fee.

Review: Your website advertising was somewhat deceptive regarding doing a quitclaim on a name change. "If you are transferring the property to yourself under your new name, all you have to do is update the deed from your former name to your current one." This made this sound easy. But when I downloaded the material for my state, expecting to find an example, there was no example of how to do a name change quitclaim deed! I therefore had to figure this out myself. You might have provided a warning about certain uses that were not covered in the material so that people know ahead of time that the use they needed to know about wasn't covered in the material.

Review: I was very glad to have this option for filing a form as it would have taken 4 days due to offices being closed to the public during the COVID 19 epidemic. I found the process to be fairly simple and I was able to file the document within 24 hours.

Review: Nice service at a fair price. Website is not very user oriented. Messages accumulate in the messages area but are not emailed to the client. If you used the service regularly, it would be more understandable but for a first time or occasional user, the site can be time consuming.
