West Virginia Certification of Trust

The certification of trust is part of the Uniform Trust Code, codified in West Virginia at 44D-10-1013, and provides protection for parties doing business with trustees. The document "need not contain the dispositive terms of a trust" ( 44D-10-1013(d)) and, in West Virginia, is generally not recorded with land records. Rather, the certification is presented to third parties such as banks or other financial institutions doing business with a trustee.

Executed by any trustee, the certificate contains only the pertinent information required for the business at hand and is a basic summary of the trust instrument. It states that the trust exists and that it has not been revoked or modified in a way that would invalidate the information presented within. In addition, it requires the name of each settlor and acting trustee; the trustee's relevant powers; the name of anyone having a power to revoke the trust; the trust's taxpayer identification number; and the name by which the trust vests title to property. The form also details the signing authority of co-trustees, if applicable.

Each situation is unique, so contact an attorney with questions about the certification of trust or any other issue relating to trusts in West Virginia.
