What is the Tennessee Certificate of Trust?

The certificate of trust is codified at T.C.A. 35-15-1013 as part of the Tennessee Uniform Trust Code. The purpose of the certificate is "to evidence the existence and validity of the trust" (35-15-1013(a)). The document contains sworn statements made "by the trustee or trustees having signatory authority as identified" within the document (35-15-1013(a)). The recipient of a certificate of trust may rely on the statements made within as factual without additional inquiry (35-15-1013(d)).

Instead of furnishing the trust document, a trustee may present a certificate of trust to third parties when doing business on behalf of the trust. The certificate is a condensed summary of the trust and its provisions, and allows the settlor's estate plans, including the identities of trust beneficiaries, to remain private.

A certificate of trust contains statements that the trust exists and that it "has not been revoked, modified or amended in any manner that would cause" the information in the certificate to be incorrect. The document recites the name and date of trust, the settlor, trustee, and relevant powers of the trustee to conduct the business for which the certificate is presented.

If there is a successor trustee, the document details the conditions of their succession. Certificates for trusts with multiple trustees define how many trustees are required to jointly act to conduct trustee powers. If the trust is revocable, the form includes the name of anyone with a power to revoke the trust. Finally, it presents the name by which the trust holds title to assets and, if necessary for the transaction for which the certificate is given, the trust's identification number.

If recorded to facilitate acquisitions or transfers of real property, a certificate of trust should include the legal description of the property subject to the transfer. The document must meet requirements for recording in Tennessee before submitted in the register of deeds in the appropriate county.

The protections under 35-15-1013 for persons dealing with trustees are not dependent on receipt of a certificate.

Contact a lawyer for questions about preparing a certificate of trust or any other matters involving trusts in Tennessee.

Review: My experience could not have been better. Easy to communicate with, even though I'm largely ignorant of technical problem-solving. I may be addle-minded with 83 years on earth, but I think they actually cared about solving my problem and were sorry it was beyond their territory. Truly extra nice.

Name: Philippe B.

Review: I purchased a Quit Claim Deed package a couple weeks ago. The included guide unfortunately didn't answer all the questions about my specific case of how to fill it out, so I sent them a couple questions on Sept 8. It's now the 23rd, and still no reply. The form is a useless waste of money if I don't know how to fill it out in a legally-accurate way.

Reply from Staff on September 23rd, 2020

We certainly do not want you to waste your money Philippe, to that end your order and payment has been canceled. We do hope that you seek the advice of a legal professional familiar with your specific situation. It should go without saying but just to be clear, our do it yourself forms do not include legal representation for $19. Have a wonderful day.

Review: Absolutely recommend Deeds.com! The process to recording your document is explained step by step. If you have any questions, you just send a message and almost instantly a staff member will reply. Super quick processing. I uploaded my document late Friday afternoon, it was reviewed by Deeds.com staff and sent to the county for recording on Monday. By Tuesday, my document was successfully recorded by the County Recorder's Office and a copy of my recorded document was available for me, as well!
