Certification of a Trust in Colorado

When a trustee wishes to conduct business with a bank in the name of a trust, he/she needs to prove his/her authority to do so by producing a certification of trust, governed by C.R.S. 11-105-111 (2017). The certification of trust stands as prima facie evidence of the facts presented within.

Similar to a statement of authority, which identifies a trust and its trustee, and is recorded alongside a conveyance of real property into a trust, the certificate of trust verifies the existence of a trust and a trustee's authority to act on behalf of the trust. However, the certificate of trust is not necessarily recorded, and it provides more information about the trust.

The certificate functions as "evidence of the trust relationship" by presenting essential information about the trust (C.R.S. 11-105-111(1)). It is a summary of the trust agreement conferring administrative powers to the trustee, and sometimes contains excerpts of the relevant information directly from the trust agreement. The certificate does not disclose nonessential provisions of the trust agreement, such as the identity of those having a beneficial interest in the trust, which some may prefer to keep confidential.

A valid certificate contains the trust's name and date, the identities of the settlor and the acting trustee, and the powers of the acting trustee regarding the transaction at hand. In addition, it identifies the trust as either irrevocable or revocable, and confirms who holds a power to revoke the trust, as well as the name by which the trust will hold title to assets. As with other documents affecting real property, the certificate should contain a legal description, including the commonly known street address of the property.

Trust law can quickly become complicated, and each situation is unique, and some lending institutions may require further information to supplement a certificate of trust.

Excellent find (Deeds.com) from a google search, first hit. This was exactly what we were looking for. It also got me to upgrade Adobe to be able to fill in the forms.
Will be back for follow up as needed, but I think I got everything we needed in the first downloads. Appreciate a well done site like yours. Thanks John

This is an excellent resource. I was surprised because the price is so low I thought the products might be inferior. Not only were were the requested documents high quality, additional unrequested documents were added to my order that I didn't realize I would need until I read them. I especially appreciate that all the documents were specific to my county. I highly recommend using deeds.com.

One thing I would suggest that could be changed is the last page because we have a trust and I had to retype that page to include the trust and both trustee's signatures.

I love deeds.com - hands down, the quickest way to record a warranty deed. The process and communication is so quick - the recording transaction too. Worth the extra $20 to me for my time! I didn't spend over an hour driving around, talking to someone via a kiosk to record the deed, didn't have to spend the energy of loading kids into the car to come with me, etc. The efficiency and timely process is worth the cost! Love having this available! The whole process via deeds.com took less than 5 minutes to upload a document and less than 3 minutes to pay the invoice shortly thereafter. The final recording was in my inbox in less than an hour. Thank you!
