A trust is an arrangement whereby one person (the settlor) transfers property to another (trustee), who manages it for the benefit of a third (the beneficiary). A settlor may establish a trust to take effect during his lifetime (inter vivos trust), or a trust may be created upon his death through probate pursuant to the provisions of a will (testamentary trust).

The settlor creates a living trust by executing a trust instrument, which generally remains unrecorded. The settlor may elect to serve as the original trustee and name a successor trustee, who will assume the powers and duties of the trustee upon the settlor's death or incapacity.

When real property is transferred into the trust, the property belongs to the trust. As the trust itself cannot hold title to the property, the settlor must execute a deed titling the property in the name of the trustee on behalf of the trust. The trustee is bound to serve the trust pursuant to its terms and the powers and duties of trustees, codified at Wyo. Stat. Ann 4-10-801 to 4-10-817 as part of the Uniform Trust Code in Wyoming.

To convey real property out of the living trust, the trustee must execute a deed as the granting party. A deed executed by a trustee in a representative capacity is simply titled a trustee's deed. In Wyoming, the trustee's deed is functionally equivalent to a special warranty deed. Though warranty deeds and quitclaim deeds are the most commonly used conveyancing forms in Wyoming, the special warranty deed was codified in 2015 at 34-2-136.

A special warranty deed is a conveyance in fee simple to the grantee and contains the covenants that the property is "free from all encumbrances made by the grantor" except those expressly noted in the form of conveyance, and that the grantor "will forever warrant and defend the title of the property in the grantee... against any lawful claim and demand of the grantor and any person claiming or to claim by, through, or under the grantor, but against none other" (34-2-137). Grantors serving in a representative capacity commonly use a special warranty deed for transfers because it limits their obligation to only the time they held title to the property.

The trustee's deed is modified from the statutory form of a special warranty deed to include the trust's vesting information in the granting field. It requires each acting trustee's name, the name of the trust, and the date of the trust instrument. To maintain a clear chain of title, the deed references the prior instrument by which the trustee acquired title. Trustees may present an affidavit or certification of trust to confirm their authority to convey trust property (see 4-10-1014). The deed is signed by each trustee in the presence of a notary public before recording in the county in which the subject property is located.

Consult a lawyer with any questions regarding trusts and trustee's deeds in the State of Wyoming.

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.

The paperwork/forms are fine, but there isn't enough explanation for me to figure out how to file the extra forms (which I do need in my case). The main form, Deed Upon Death is fine. I think the price is pretty high for these forms. I wouldn't have purchased it because there are places to get them for much cheaper (about 6 dollars), but this site had the extra forms I wanted (property in a trust and another form). Unfortunately these were included as a "courtesy" and there are no instructions for them. So three stars for being clear about what was in the package, having the right forms that I need, but instructions for putting them to use and price took a couple of stars off. Downloading was easy and once you download you can type the info into the PDF--that makes working with the forms much easier.

Thank you for the feedback Maria. Regarding the supplement documents, it is best to get assistance from the agency that requires them. These are not legal documents, they should provide full support and guidance for them.
