Certificates

A certificate of a trust agreement conveying an interest in real property may be recorded with the clerk of the appropriate chancery court, in the place of the entire trust agreement.  A certificate of trust agreement must contain particulars including the name of the trust and address of the trustee and grantor, a legally sufficient description of all interests in real property owned by or conveyed to the trust, the anticipated date of termination of the trust; and the general powers granted to the trustee.  The rules covering trust certificates vary in the different states of the United States.  The related law of each state is discussed under the following state links.
