What is the New York Memorandum of Trust?

Using a New York Memorandum of Trust

In New York, trustees of personal trusts use a memorandum of trust to certify the existence of a trust and their authority to act on behalf of the trust. The memorandum is used in place of the actual trust document and provides only essential information about the trust for lending institutions or other third parties. In this way, information that may be personal in nature, such as the designated beneficiaries under the trust, is kept confidential.

The memorandum is executed and signed by the grantor of the trust under the trust instrument, as well as the trust's formal name and date of origination. It identifies the trustee and any successor trustees with power to act on behalf of the trust.

The difference between a declaration of trust and a trust agreement, as designated in the memorandum of trust document, is the grantor's relationship to the trustee. If the trustee and the grantor are the same person and the grantor controls trust assets, the trust falls under a declaration of trust. If the grantor and the trustee are separate people and the trustee controls the trust assets, trust is under a trust agreement [1].

The distinction between a declaration of trust and a trust agreement also affects the name by which the trust takes title to real property as a grantee. In the following example, "John Doe," under a declaration of trust, serves as both grantor and trustee: "John Doe, trustee under declaration of trust dated mm/dd/yyyy." Under a trust agreement, the grantor name is included as well: "John Doe under agreement with Robert Grantor dated mm/dd/yyyy" [1].

All recorded documents relating to real property in the State of New York are required to include a physical description of the property, as well as the section, lot, block, and unit numbers.

Review: Your website advertising was somewhat deceptive regarding doing a quitclaim on a name change. "If you are transferring the property to yourself under your new name, all you have to do is update the deed from your former name to your current one." This made this sound easy. But when I downloaded the material for my state, expecting to find an example, there was no example of how to do a name change quitclaim deed! I therefore had to figure this out myself. You might have provided a warning about certain uses that were not covered in the material so that people know ahead of time that the use they needed to know about wasn't covered in the material.

Name: Beverly L J.

Review: The process for receiving the quitclaim document worked well. I couldn't use the document. If I had been able to view the document before I had to pay for it, I would have known, but that isn't how your process works. However, that's the only snag I found. Otherwise the process for paying and downloading the document worked well. Thank you.

Name: Samuel M.

Review: it was convenient to have a starting place, however, though the property is in Colorado, the probate is in Iowa, so I had to create my own document because you locked my capacity to edit the form I paid for. If I pay for it, I should be able to edit everything including non fill in text. I could not open it in word, as I normally could.
