The Iowa trustee's deed is a form of conveyance used to move real property out of a trust.

Generally, the trustee's deed is named for the person executing the document, rather than for the warranties of title contained within. In Iowa, however, trustee's deeds carry certain covenants that, when paired with an affidavit of trustee under Iowa Code 614.14, secure the purchaser against adverse claims. Because of this, Iowa's trustee's deeds are often labelled "Trustee's Warranty Deed."

The trustee is the person designated in the trust instrument as the trust's administrator. The trust instrument is executed by the settlor, who, in addition to setting out the provisions of the trust, funds the trust with assets, which may include real estate. The trust instrument also identifies the trust's beneficiaries, who will receive income from the trust and/or trust property after the settlor's death.

In a trustee's deed, the trustee fulfills the role of the grantor. The deed provides the name and date of the trust under which the trustee is acting, and references the prior deed under which the trustee was granted title to the property. As with other instruments affecting real property, the trustee's deed recites the legal description of the real estate being transferred.

Pursuant to Iowa Code 614.14(4), unless a contrary provision is clearly stated, a trustee transferring an interest in real estate warrants that the trust on behalf of which the trustee is acting is duly executed and in existence; that, to the knowledge of the trustee, the settlor was under no disability or infirmity at the time the trust was created; that the transfer by the trustee to the purchaser is effective and rightful; and the trustee has no knowledge of facts or legal claims which might impair the validity of the trust or the validity of the transfer. These recitations are made in the text of the deed.

All acting trustees must sign the deed in the presence of a notary public for a valid transfer. The deed is then recorded in the county in which the real property is located. Additional documentation, such as a certification of trust or affidavits of trustee and purchaser may be required for the transaction.

Consult a lawyer with questions about trustee's deeds, as each situation is unique.

I am really impressed by this website. Not only is it affordable, but they give a detailed description, instructions, and an example to follow. Also there are additional forms included. And it's State, even county, specific. They do not require a subscription either as you can just order what you want. Thank you!

This is a wonderful service and your staff is very responsive through the chat. My one suggestion is that there be an added sentence to your instructions that sates that once you upload there is nothing more to do as in a "submit" or "Finished uploading" button. After uploading instinct says there is something to click to let you all know that we have finished with our uploads.

The purchasing process was very slick and my credit card was charged IMMEDIATELY. The deliver went well as the link was provided immediately.

However I asked a question via the "Contact Us" link and days later I get a survey but no reply.

I may have been directed to the wrong forms via my County and I wanted to confirm that...but still no answer.

What would that deserve as a rating???
