An affidavit of trustee contains sworn statements made by a trustee and relating to a specific transaction involving real property contained by the trust. The affidavit of trustee for a non-testamentary trust is codified at Minn. Stat. 501C.1014, Subd. 1.

A non-testamentary trust, also called an inter vivos or living trust, is a trust that takes effect during a settlor's lifetime. A settlor is "a person, including a testator, who creates or contributes property to a trust" (Minn. Stat. 501C.0103(o)). The affidavit of trustee for a non-testamentary trust references a recorded certificate of trust, including the recording date and location, or states that the affidavit is attached to the certificate, and confirms that the certificate was executed by the affiant, another trustee, or the settlor of the trust described in the certificate and relating to the specific parcel of land described in the affidavit.

The affidavit must contain a full legal description of the property subject to the transaction for which the affidavit is presented. It references the trustee and other party involved in the transaction, and offers proof that the required number of trustees are entering the transaction and that those trustees are authorized under the trust instrument to act on the title to the real property held in the trust, and that there are no trust amendments that limit the power of the trustees.

The affiant confirms that the trust has not terminated and that the trust instrument has not been revoked, or that, if the trust has terminated, the transaction involving the real property is made pursuant to the provisions of the trust. If the trust is under court supervision, the affidavit provides the name and location of the court.

The affidavit of trustee must be signed by an acting trustee in the presence of a notary public and may be recorded separately or as an attachment to a certificate of trust under Minn. Stat. 501C.1013. Submit the instrument for recording with the county recorder, or registrar of titles in the case of registered land, in the county in which the real property described in the affidavit is situated.

Consult a lawyer with questions regarding affidavits of trustee or Minnesota trust law in general, as each situation is unique and trust law can quickly become complex.

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.

It worked great- I had a little trouble at first with the site, figuring out where to do what, but the form was much better than the one we purchased at Staples, loved being able to fill out with the computer. We did need the other form as per the screen prior to ordering but couldn't figure out which one. The ladies at the recorders were great too.

I am happy with the document but did not know that it would still have to go before the court. Thought it could be handled by the recorder of deeds.

I find your forms hard to use, inasmuch as the forms cannot be converted to a Word Document. Editing and deleting of extra lines is not possible, making for a deed with large blank spaces.
Document that results is not usable for me.

Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We have canceled your order and payment. We do hope you find something more suitable to your needs elsewhere. Have a wonderful day.
