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

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 was very glad to have this option for filing a form as it would have taken 4 days due to offices being closed to the public during the COVID 19 epidemic. I found the process to be fairly simple and I was able to file the document within 24 hours.
