What we offer

 

TRUST CONSULTATION

We work with our clients to understand their needs so we can provide the right structure for their trust as well as beneficiary relationships.

CORPORATE TRUSTEE SERVICE

As corporate Trustee, our name and address will appear on all public records providing our clients privacy and anonymity.

DOCUMENT RECORDING

Whether you own an existing property to be placed in trust or purchasing a property through a trust we will ensure that the warranty deed to trustee is properly recorded. Additionally, when necessary, we will record other state required documents.


DOCUMENT PREPARATION

For each Land Trust created we will prepare your Land Trust Agreement and Warranty Deed to Trustee. There are many other unrecorded documents that can be required depending on the structure of your trust and the financing that you may be utilizing for your real estate.  We provide the preparation for most of these necessary documents. As required we will also provide tax reporting forms to accompany documentary stamps on unrecorded transfers within your trust. 

CLOSING COORDINATION

We work with the title companies, attorneys, and escrow companies, preparing your closing documents to ensure that transactions are completed smoothly and accurately. In some cases the trust will be the buyer of the property and we will sign all closing documents. Upon a transfer of the property, whether to another beneficiary or out of the trust, we will sign all documents upon your review and approval.
