A Land Trust is an exceptional asset protection tool that offers numerous benefits to property owners. One of the great benefits of a land Trust is that it provides confidentiality of ownership, so no one knows what real estate you own either during your life or at your death. Land Trusts are unique because they convert real property interest into a contractual interest. With a Land Trust, the trustee holds legal and equitable title to real property under a recorded Deed of Trust, and the beneficiaries hold personal property rights of use and enjoyment to the property under an unrecorded Land Trust Agreement. Land trusts are only available in a number of states. In Florida, Land Trusts have been authorized by statute and are governed by the Florida Land Trust Act.
