Missouri Trustee Deed

A trustee uses a trustee's deed to convey property held in a living trust in Missouri.
In a trust arrangement, the settlor conveys property to the trustee, who holds title to the property for the benefit of a third party, the trust's beneficiary.

The trustee is the administrator of the trust whose power to sell trust property, in this case, is conferred by the trust instrument, the document executed by the trust's settlor establishing the trust and containing the trust provisions. The Missouri Uniform Trust Code also confirms the trustee's power to "acquire or sell property in divided or undivided interests, for cash or on credit, at public or private sale" ( 456.8-816, RSMo).

The granting language of "bargain and sell, convey and confirm" is the common language used in Missouri to transfer property to a grantee with special warranty. A special warranty contains limited covenants of clear title (subject to noted encumbrances), and protection against claims arising by or through the grantor only.

In addition to meeting the requirements for content and format required by standard deeds, such as quitclaim or warranty deeds, trustee's deeds must also reference the trust instrument designating the acting trustee. The deed must be signed by the acting trustee's in the presence of a notary public for a valid transfer. A distinct acknowledgment form for trustees is codified at 486.330(5), RSMo.

Robert D. said: These forms made it so easy to update the property deed and the instructions and sample filled out form were most helpful. You might want to add some brief information on when or why to use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity notary form. In my case the notary was required to use it but also filled in the brief notarize section on the Affidavit as well. She said the one on the Affidavit had some value because it showed she had witnessed the my signature. But this was only after I suggested both be filled in as she initially thought to just strike through it and just use the Acknowledgment in Individual Capacity form.
