What is the Massachusetts Trustee Deed

Used to convey title to real property held in a living (non-testamentary) trust, the trustee's deed takes its name from the party executing the conveyance, the trustee. In Massachusetts, the trustee's deed typically carries quitclaim covenants guaranteeing title against claims arising only under the grantor's duration of ownership.

Trusts are governed by the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code at chapter 203E of the Massachusetts General Laws. In a trust, the trustee holds legal title to property conveyed into trust by the trust's settlor, for the benefit of a beneficiary. A beneficiary is someone with a present or future interest in the trust (G.L.c. 203E, 103). The terms of the trust, including a designation of the trustee, the trustee's powers, and the trust's beneficiary, are set forth in the trust instrument, which is executed by the settlor and generally not recorded.

Conveyances by trustee are generally accompanied by a trustee's certificate under G.L.c. 184, 35, evidencing the trustee's authority in the transaction at hand. The trustee's certificate is recorded separately, either simultaneously with the deed conveying real property into trust, or when the trustee acts upon the title.

The Massachusetts Real Estate Bar Association (REBA) Title Standard 33 also addresses transfers by trustees. The standard states that recipients of a trustee's deed are not obligated to inquire into the trustee's authority if the trustee's certificate is presented, which recites that third parties may rely without inquiry on the acts of said trustee. The standard also applies if a trustee's certificate is unrecorded or unreferenced in the transfer, but the transfer is executed by all trustees appearing of record to be trustees.

Apart from naming each acting trustee, the trustee's deed recites the name of the trust and contains a reference to the trustee's certificate, if any, of record. The document should also contain a reference to the prior instrument granting title to the trustee. As the conveyance affects real property, the deed requires a legal description of the affected parcel. Each acting trustee must sign the deed in the presence of a notary public for a valid transfer.

Consult a lawyer for guidance, as trust law can quickly become complex, and each situation is unique.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

I am a litigator based in Lee County that rarely needs to record deeds or mortgages. However, at times, the settlement or resolution of a dispute results in the conveyance of real property. I ended up in a situation where a deed to real property in Bradford County needed to be recorded on behalf of a client. My usual e-recording vendor does not include that County. Registering with Bradford County's regular e-recording vendor would have required an expensive and unnecessary annual fee.

Deeds.com was easy to use, inexpensive and fast. I highly encourage its use, especially for lawyers that occasionally need to record instruments but do not do so regularly.
