What is the Delaware Trustee Deed?

Used in trust administration, a trustee's deed conveys real property out of a trust and vests title in the name of a grantee. Unlike other instruments of conveyance, this deed is named for the person executing the deed rather than the type of transfer it is.

A trustee is the person who holds legal title to trust property in the name of the trust. The trustee is appointed in the trust instrument, an unrecorded document executed by a trustor, who funds a trust with assets. The powers of the trustee relevant to the conveyance of real property are also enumerated in the trust instrument.

The trustee's deed follows the statutory form for conveyances of real property in Delaware (Del. Code tit. 29, 121(a)). Pursuant to Del. Code tit. 29, 121(b), the deed functions like a special warranty deed, meaning it carries a warranty of title only for the duration of the current grantor's ownership of the property.

Under a trustee's deed, the trustee is named as the grantor, and basic information about the trust under which the trustee is acting also appears. As with all instruments affecting real property, the trustee's deed requires a legal description of the subject property. All acting trustees named under the trust instrument as required to sign must sign the deed in the presence of a notary public for a legal transfer. The deed is then recorded in the county in which the subject property is situated. Also, note that each of Delaware's three counties specify different deed format requirements, so make sure to use the correct layout for the property's location.

Each case is unique, so consult an attorney with any questions or for complex situations.

Review: The basic setup was fine but, I need to review the document in its entirety for accuracy which I have yet to do so. So far so good. The monthly fee is more than I need for right now.

Review: Love the ability to e-record a single document as a private citizen. Other companies only want to do business with large volume filers like title companies and attorneys. e-recording was super easy and so efficient. Got confirmation of recording from county clerk less than one hour after submission.

Name: Mica M.

Review: Best Way EVER to record a warranty deed! It was nice to not have to drive anywhere and find the facility closed or "unable to process due to covid19 and buildings being closed". The correspondence between me and deeds.com was very timely in our back and forth email correspondence, and the processing was all finished in a timely manner. Totally worth the extra $15 that I paid in addition to the recording fee. I would use this again and again. My time and the efficiency of the job completed is worth the money.
