Since the trust is the owner of the property, lease, rental or purchase agreements would be with the trust, with your wife signing as trustee, NOT as the individual seller herself. Thus, the landlord would be “The 123 Main Street Trust”.
Bronchick recommends the following wording following the trustee’s signature in such a situation:
“____________, as Trustee, and not personally, of the Trust named above. All parties dealing with said Trustee shall look solely to the assets of the trust.”
In fact, I have a rubber stamp with that wording, which is stamped after the signature on agreements requiring a trustee’s signature.
