I’m looking at a deal where the owner of record passed away in 2013. This owner had the property in a trust and he (the owner) was the trustee from what I can tell. Now that he has passed away the he son is now the trustee according to the ‘certificate of incumbency’ he shared with me. I have a few questions about this situation:
1. When I google ‘certificate of incumbency’ it seems that it is generally a document used by companies to confirm the identity of officers, etc. Would that type of document be valid for a land sale?
2. The ‘certificate of incumbency’ references and was recorded with another APN from a county and state that doesn’t apply to this transaction. Does that matter? The document still establishes the son as the trustee of the given trust.
Would love to hear some feedback on this issue. Thanks!
