The certification of trust is a short one page document that outlines the key issues involved in your trust. It identifies the trust name, the date the trust was signed and notarized - and confirms that the trust is indeed a legally binding document.
The certification also identifies the grantors and trustees and confirms that the trustee has the power to act on behalf of the trust. The specific powers of the trustee are reaffirmed in full and often the “Powers of Trustee” section of the trust will be attached in full.
Nothing about your beneficiaries or details of regarding the distribution of assets is included in the certification of trust.
The certification is primarily used to transfer title of assets into the trust.
