In Illinois, a trustee's deed is used to transfer real property out of a trust. The deed is named for the person executing it -- the trustee. According to Black's Law Dictionary, 8th ed., a trustee is someone who, having legal title to property, holds it in trust for the benefit of another and owes a fiduciary duty to that beneficiary. A fiduciary is someone who must exercise a high standard of care in managing another's money or property.

The trustee's deed establishes basic information about the trust, such as the name and date of the trust document. The trustee serves as the grantor in the deed, and transfers the title into the grantee's name. As with all other conveyances of real property, the deed requires a legal description of the property being conveyed, as well as a Property Identification Number (PIN) and commonly known address. For a valid transfer, the trustee must sign the deed in the presence of a notary, who confirms (notarizes) the signature.

My rating is not a 5. Although it had good instructions, it would NOT print the whole document no matter how many times I inputted the names. I ended up writing it in to complete.
I also recommend putting it on one page. I had to pay an additional fees per page and if I had to notarize it, why did I have to find 2 witnesses as well.
I deserve a discount for the time I spent repeatedly putting the same data. I was trying to save money since Im on social security only. It didnt. Get it to work correctly

Was quick and easy compared to visiting downtown where the recorders office is closed or just the thought of mailing important documents and waiting until someone hopefully reaches back out to you. All responses were timely and process was easy. No complaints.
