Simple, inexpensive ownership option provides privacy protection

A land trust is a legal agreement in which a property owner (or group of owners) transfers a property title to a trustee, but retains the freedom to develop, rent and sell the property. First American Bank can help you set up a trust that, among other advantages, allows the identity of property owners to remain private, the probate process to be avoided, and land ownership to be easily transferred. Currently, First American Bank offers land trust services through our Illinois land trust office only.
