Mississippi Trustee Deed for Inter Vivos Trust

Use a trustee's deed to transfer real property held in an inter vivos trust (also called a living trust). This type of deed is named for the executing trustee of the living trust, who holds legal title to the real property transferred into trust by the trust's settlor, and not for the type of warranty it carries, as with other forms of conveyance. Note that this type of trustee's deed is separate from the trustee's deed used to convey real property under a deed of trust upon foreclosure.

The trustee's deed for a living trust recites the trustee's name, address, telephone number, and capacity, and includes the name of and date of the trust on behalf of which the trustee is authorized to act. In addition, it includes the grantee's name, address, telephone number, and vesting information. Trustees may produce a certification of trust under Miss. Code Ann. 91-8-1013 verifying the trustee's authority to enter into the transaction.

The form's granting language contains implied covenants "that the grantor was seized of an estate, free from incumbrance made or suffered by the grantor, except the rents and services that may be reserved, and also for quiet enjoyment against the grantor, his heirs and assigns, unless limited by express word contained in the conveyance" (Miss. Code Ann. 89-1-41).

As with all conveyances in Mississippi, the deed requires a legal description of the property subject to the conveyance. Indexing instructions may also be required. The instrument should recite the name, address, telephone number, and bar number, if applicable, of the person who prepared the document. The trustee's signature must be witnessed in the presence of a notary public for a valid transfer.

Consult a lawyer with any questions regarding trustee's deeds in Mississippi.

Michael M. said: My sale is a land contract and it is complicated. We were thinking we'd have to get an attorney. Your site is very thorough and helpful. We will still have an attorney look over our final papers --and we are still waiting on my deed from the bank to finalize our input. Had several questions, but they seemed to be answered as I went along. The actual process of downloading and saving and having a link went very smoothly. Thank you.
