No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

A certification of trust is a document that contains relevant details about an established trust containing real property. It is governed by Texas Property Code Sec. 114.086. A certification of trust validates the existence of the trust by identifying its full name, the date it was established, the names of the settlor (grantor) and trustees, the trustees' powers, and other details as needed. This is important because it allows the actual trust agreement, which is generally not recorded, to remain private.

The form is executed by the trustee and signed by the trustee and grantor (who can be the same person) and recorded in the office of the county recorder in any Texas county in which all or a portion of the real property is located. In order to facilitate a transfer of real property into a trust, financial institutions may require the trustee to furnish a certification of trust. In addition, third parties may request a certification of trust to confirm the trustee has the authority to transfer real property out of the trust.

Thank you so much for providing simple but very significant documents one can basically do PRO SE, without any additional huge counsel expenses and yet be legitimate enough to officially file them as state law allows and extends to basic documents processing and filings. Thank you so much for the professional documents provided as they do the proper job. MP

Process went smoothly and will use for my next recording. Only area for improvement would be to provide the ability for the user to delete and replace uploaded documents.

Your website is very informative, and easy to use.The purchase and download process was clear and went well. I would add that your Virginia Quitclaim Deed Guide is very comprehensive and informative. This combined with the example form you provide is most helpful.
Thank You. Brian R

I have an apple phone. I could not fill in the form to pay because apple phones do not have a dash that can be used when the field requires a phone number with a dash. I had to borrow an android phone in which the telephone keypad had a dash that could be used. It was easy to pay using an android phone but impossible to pay using an apple phone. Remove the requirement for dashes to allow apple phones to use this service.
