When you sell your home remember that the money in your Trust account must STAY with the property per the Declaration of Trust.
Per the *Declaration of Trust, the purpose of the trust has been established for the cost of exterior painting. If there is a positive balance in the Trust account at the time a home is sold, that balance transfers to the new owners, (the Trust Fund stays with the property) Working with your Realtor you can however, use the Trust Fund as a negotiating tool or write something in the sales agreement for what is left in your Trust balance as it impacts your sales price. This is something that you would work out during negotiations of the Sale with your realtor.
