Georgia Certification of Trust

Under O.C.G.A. 53-12-280, a certification of trust is the document a trustee uses to establish the existence of trust provisions. The trustee furnishes the certificate to a party other than a trust beneficiary (someone who has a beneficial interest in the trust) in lieu of providing a copy of the full trust instrument. The certificate's purpose is to verify the trust's existence and the trustee's authority to act under the trust.

In trusts affecting real property, the trustee is the person who holds legal title to the real property ( 53-12-2(16)). The trustee's powers are established in the trust instrument, which is executed by a settlor in the creation of a trust.

The certificate contains only the essential information about a trust, including the name and date of the trust and identities of the settlor and acting trustees, as well as any successor trustees. The identities of those having a beneficial interest in the trust remain undisclosed. In addition, the certificate states how trust property should be titled, and whether or not the settlor has the power to revoke the trust. The trustee's powers relevant to the management of trust property are enumerated, as well as restrictions, if any, concerning those powers.

Some third parties might request copies of relevant sections of the trust instrument ( 53-12-280(d)), even though Georgia statutes confirm that the details contained within the certificate are to be presumed correct. This presumption suggests that the recipient of a certification of trust is not liable for actions based on false information given within ( 53-12-280(e)).

Like all recorded documents concerning real property, the certificate should also contain a legal description of the real property subject to the trust, including the property's parcel identification number. The document is executed and acknowledged by all trustees in front of a notary before it is recorded in the county wherein the real property subject to the trust is located.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

The forms are extremely helpful. They could use some updating. Promissory note "...in the form of cash, check or money order." is a bit outdated. My note is with my son and we have an automatic bank transfer set up for payments. He could Venmo me. There are many other options and likely to be more changes in the future, so I know this is difficult to maintain.

These guys saved the day! Very good at what they do and deliver AS ADVERTISED!! My county's recorder's office was closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the recorder's office did not offer the service I needed online. Attempting to close on a home the following day, I was in immediate need of a deed for property that I previously owned to provide to the underwriters for my pending loan. I thought I was dead in the water and would miss my next day closing date. Strolling the internet for options, I came upon DEEDS.COM. After reading the posted reviews, I thought I would give them a try. Within 10 minutes of placing my order, I received ALL the information I requested about the property I previously owned. Thank you DEEDS.COM for the prompt, courteous, and professional service. You guys are ROCK STARS!!! I closed on my new home.
