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.

Very pleased. I spent a fair amount of time chasing a blank form only to be told it couldn't be given to me - I had to go through my attorney.
Going thru the deeds.com was a breeze; the blank form looked exactly like one I had filed before :-)
