A statement of authority is used by a partnership, corporation, government agency, LLC, or other entity who is not an individual to evidence the entity's existence and the identity of the person(s) authorized to act on behalf of the entity [1]. The statement of authority in the State of Colorado is governed by Section 38-30-172 of the Revised Statutes (2016).

Under C.R.S. 38-30-108.5(1), "A trust may acquire, convey, encumber, lease, or otherwise deal with any interest in real ... property in the name of the trust." A statement of authority is recorded alongside a conveyance of interest in real property to a trust; it is executed by the person(s) authorized to hold the title on behalf of the trust -- in this case, the trustee(s).

In addition to listing the name and type of the entity (trust, in this case) and the identity of any persons authorized to execute instruments affecting title to real property on its behalf (trustee), the statement of authority specifies the state, country, or other governmental authority under whose laws it was formed (Colorado) [2]. The document also provides the mailing address of the entity so that the assessor knows where to send tax statements for the property [3].

The statement can also describe limitations, if any, of the trustee's authority to bind the entity; the absence of any listed in the statement of authority serves as prima facie evidence that none exist [4]. The statement may also contain any other matters concerning the manner in which the entity deals with interests in real property.

The statement of authority is signed by the trustee(s) named in the document and acknowledged before a notary public before it is recorded in the county in which the subject real property is situated [5]. Since the document affects an interest in real property, a legal description, including the commonly known address, should be included to distinguish the subject property; use the same legal description on the deed conveying the interest to the trust.

Thanks for providing this service. We had searched for weeks for the correct documents. It might help clients to find you soon if the banks and mortgage companies can refer clients to you. They require the forms but offer no direct source to obtain them. You are 5 star in every way.

it would be nice to have explanation of all the forms required. For a first time estate DPOA, I feel a bit insecure with the forms and would like a paragraph explaining specifics for each link and what to complete for the ladybird deed. Otherwise, I love the ease of purchase with immediate links available.

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.
