Jeffery Wolfson , Real Estate Agent EXP Realty

A statement attached to an insurance policy changing the terms of the policy. A signature on a draft or check by a payee prior to the transfer to a third party. A payee provides such an endorsement when transferring this draft to the payee'bank. A restrictive endorsement limits the use of the check to a single purpose. A special endorsement is used when the check is used to pay someone else. All that is required is to indicate the payee and sign.

I am updating my will. The title policy does cover the Trustee of the trust. Do I need a form that states that so it will be known after my death.

Hi Susie! 


The answer to your question is yes.  In such situations, it's always best to have as much documentation on record, just in case someone disputes the division of your estate to whomever you have entrusted your belongings and property.
