The Fund’s Underwriting department receives many inquiries from Fund Members seeking assistance with clearing trust requirements. Trusts can be complicated and often contain unrecorded terms and conditions that affect ownership of the real property interests held in trust. The purpose of this article is to introduce Fund Members to The Fund’s updated commitment clauses dealing with trusts and to explain why they are required and how the requirements can be cleared. With a little practice, Fund Members and their staff members can gain confidence in dealing with trusts.

There are three categories of deeds involving trusts that a Fund Member will regularly encounter — the Sec. 689.07, F.S., “as Trustee” deed; a land trust formed under the Florida Land Trust Act, Sec. 689.071, F.S.; and an express trust, either revocable or irrevocable, made pursuant to the Florida Trust Code, Ch. 736, F.S.

The power to invade principal in trust or “decant” was later codified in Sec. 736.04117, F.S.

Fee simple absolute title is usually described as “the full bundle of sticks.” Often, in a commercial transaction, the seller does not have the full bundle of sticks to convey. Typically, at least one tenant has the stick of possession via a lease. A purchaser or lender typically requires estoppel letters from every tenant and the landlord in order to determine the status of their rights and obligations under existing leases.
