What is the Delaware Certificate of Trust?

Under Del. Code tit. 12, 3591 a certification of trust presents essential information about an existing trust. Instead of providing the entire trust instrument to people who do not have a beneficial interest in the trust, the fiduciary using the certificate ensures that irrelevant or personal information remains undisclosed.

The basic information provided by the certificate includes the trust's name and date, the identity of the trustor funding the trust, and whether or not the trust is revocable, including who is able to revoke the trust. The certificate also clarifies the name by which the trust is to vest title to assets.

The certificate also validates the trustee's authority to act on behalf of the trust by naming the acting trustee, enumerating the powers of the trustee relevant to the transaction at hand, and identifying the signing authority of co-trustees, if applicable. The recipient of a certification may request copies of excerpts from the trust instrument naming the trustee and establishing the trustee's powers, but doing so opens up certain liabilities (Del. Code tit. 12, 3591 (e),(h)).

A certificate of trust also contains the trust's taxpayer ID. This number is either a trustor's social security number, or an employer identification number issued by the IRS, depending on the type of trust. If the certificate is submitted for recording, this information can be redacted pursuant to Del. Code tit. 9, 9627.

Pursuant to Del. Code tit. 12, 3591(c), the certificate requires a statement that the trust has not been revoked, modified or amended in any way that would negate the representations contained within. The document serves as prima facie evidence of the facts presented, and a person relying upon a certification of trust can enforce the subject transaction against the trust property as if the representations contained in the certification were correct (Del. Code tit. 12, 3591(g)).

As with other instruments affecting real estate, include the legal description of the subject property. The certificate is signed by any acting trustee in the presence of a notary public. The preferred format for recorded documents varies across the three Delaware counties, so make sure the certificate's borders and layout meet local requirements.

Note that this instrument is separate from a certificate of statutory trust (under Del. Code tit. 12, 3810). Each case is unique, so contact an attorney with any questions or for complex situations.

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 deeds.com 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.

Name: William S C.

Review: The Lady Bird Deed appears to be fine with me as are the instructions. However, there apparently are no specific laws in Texas addressing them other than they are OK. The problem is that lenders are surely going to use them as triggers for their due on sale clauses, especially as the current small mortgage rates begin to increase. The solution to that seems to be to sign and have them notarized, but not to record them unless the holder needs to enforce the provisions. It seems to me that you should consider your solution to that problem in your instructions.
