Buyer/Seller Using A Trust

A copy of the Trust Agreement must be reviewed prior to closing.  We need to review the document to verify a few items;  namely:  the Name of the Official Trust, a list of the Trustees who must sign, any clauses within the trust which may allow or prohibit the conveyance, sale or transfer of title to real property etc.

A complete copy of the trust is not necessary to keep in our file.  Usually we review the trust in it’s entirety and then make copies of certain portions of it which provide evidence on how to prepare our closing documents.

Another item to remember is that if the property is vested (owned) in a Trust the individuals actually don’t own it, it’s owned by the trust.  Therefore, a Power of Attorney cannot be used in the file to convey title etc.

American Secure Title is celebrating 15 years of business

American Secure Title is excited to celebrate our 15 year anniversary! It was October 1, 1998, that our founder, Gary Phillips, officially introduced American Secure Title to the public. We started in a small office with a few employees in Logan, Utah and have since grown to 5 locations covering Northern and Southern Utah. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to work with so many great home owners and clients, and that we have had so many wonderful employees. We look forward to many more years of service to our customers and friends, and want to thank everyone for their support of this great company.
