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.

Contact an attorney with any questions about Missouri trustee's deeds, or living trusts in general.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Thank you for the kind words Jayar. Glad we were able to help.

Since the recorder's office is closed, due to Covid, this worked well to submit my Quit Claim Deed. I was a bit confused with the direction and download. But, I think I got her done! We'll see if I get recorded and confirmation is received. I may be back

The service was fast, but I didn't learn about the results until I logged in. I would have liked to get email when the report was finished.

Fantastic forms! So nice to have them formatted correctly for our county, the recorder here can be very picky with the margins. No issues at all.

We used this document in 2018 and it was acceptable to Jackson County Missouri. It worked and is valid.
Very happy with the product.

This was easy to use and only contained one glaring error-where to send the completed form to finish the process. I’ve completed the form, does this mean I get the amended deed sent to me? I think not.

Could not have been easier. Instructions were clear. Guidelines and example were clearly written. Erecording worked fast and let me skip a dreaded trip downtown to be ignored by government employees who hate their jobs.
