Trust & Will’s Role in the Trust Funding process
Scope of Services
The Trust Funding Services include fees and costs that are required to support the transfer of ownership of real property from you as an individual (or couple) into the name of your trust. The Trust Funding Services include transfer and recording of one (1) grant/special warranty deed. Specifically, this includes administrative fees charged by the third party deed service as well as fees assessed by the county recorder’s office wherein the property is located. Any additional deed transfers are subject to additional fees per deed.
The Trust Funding Services Fee DOES NOT include any property tax, transfer tax reassessments or any other fees related to or resulting from the recording of the deed other than those recording fees paid at the time of recording. State and local fees, taxes, and other expenses are not included in the fee charged for Trust Funding Services, and will be billed to you separately based on your specific transaction.
Deed as a Third Party Product
DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY FOR THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS AND SERVICES. As part of its Trust Funding Services, Trust & Will may provide third party access to software and services, in particular with regard to the deed transfer process. Trust & Will will facilitate the completion of third party forms through a deed transfer service to transfer your property deed into the name of your trust. We do this through third-parties who provide specific services related to deed transfers. TRUST & WILL DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY, INCLUDING ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, FOR SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES. YOU, AS THE CUSTOMER, ACKNOWLEDGE THAT NO REPRESENTATION HAS BEEN MADE BY TRUST & WILL AS TO THE FITNESS OF THE THIRD PARTY SERVICES FOR THE INTENDED PURPOSE. TRUST AND WILL FURTHER DISCLAIMS ANY LIABILITY FOR THE SUCCESS OF YOUR DEED TRANSFER.
Deed Transfer Limitations
The Trust Funding Services are limited to the transfer of real property into your trust instrument via a grant/special warranty deed. While Trust & Will can provide informational support regarding the general process of transferring other property (such as financial accounts) into your trust instrument, the Trust Funding Services do not include transfer or individual advice regarding any other type of asset.
By agreeing to these Terms, you acknowledge that the deed transfer process is designed for assets that you, the user, own and have the legal right to transfer. In the event that you own less than a 100% interest in the real property to be transferred, the deed transfer process is only designed to transfer what you own, and only where all parties who are legally required to consent to the transfer have in fact consented to such a transfer.
In the event that you own a home in joint tenancy with another person, you acknowledge and understand that the joint tenancy will be severed by the transfer of the real property into your trust. Trust & Will assumes no responsibility for the consequences of severing joint tenancy. By agreeing to these terms and using the services, you acknowledge that any right of survivorship that exists prior to the transfer under joint tenancy will be severed and extinguished.
Most insurance policies related to real estate (fire, casualty, liability, etc.) automatically cover property transferred to a Trust. However, Trust & Will cannot make any guarantees regarding the validity of your insurance policies as connected to your property deed(s). You should verify your insurance policies are unaffected prior to initiating the transfer of your real property to your trust. YOU BEAR ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ENSURING THE DEED TRANSFER PROCESS DOES NOT INVALIDATE ANY OF YOUR EXISTING INSURANCE POLICIES.
YOU BEAR FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE FUNDING OF YOUR TRUST AND THE VALIDITY OF YOUR ESTATE PLANNING DOCUMENTS. TRUST & WILL IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE FAILURE TO PROPERLY TRANSFER ACCOUNTS, DEED, OR OTHER TRUST PROPERTY INTO THE TRUST.
Trust & Will reserves the right to augment or change the services from time to time.
