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.

We aimed to handle a survivorship affidavit (deed change) without a lawyer following my dad's death. After some searching, deeds.com seemed to have the most comprehensive and "correct looking" form we could find for our locale, so we went with it, and it was accepted by our recorder's office.

I'm not sure why our local government office doesn't offer a standard form, but they don't, and deeds.com came through for us in a pinch.

From Pennsylvania here. Documents are great and easy to fill out however you are lacking a couple of things. You only provide the option for a Grant Deed when you purchase by your county which is Mercer County for me. Why not give the ability to get a Warranty Deed that better protects the Grantee?
Also, being from Pennsylvania and in a county that mined Buituminous Coal we are required to include the Coal Severance Notice and Bituminous Mine Subsidence and Land Conservation Act Notice. You can check the box on your Deed form that they are required and attached but you do not provide the verbiage or form for this. You state that you know what each county requires and include everything required but you do not include these two required Notices. This has been a requirement for years and the wording never changes. I had to look for these Notices and hand type this information and include it on another seperate page after the Notary section on the Deed. The Grantor has to sign the Coal Severance Notice and be witnessed by a Notary so I had to add another place for the Notary and will have to pay twice for witnessed signatures when it could have been included in your document. My Deed from 2003 was done that way and then the Notary statement after that so it was only one notarized witness of signature.
