Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(21) – Florida Statutes

Text of Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(21)

“Settlor” means a person, including a testator, who creates or contributes property to a trust. If more than one person creates or contributes property to a trust, each person is a settlor of the portion of the trust property attributable to that person’s contribution except to the extent another person has the power to revoke or withdraw that portion.

History of Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(21)

The term “settlor” has been consistently defined since the Florida Trust Code took effect in 2007. However, the placement of the definition within § 736.0103 has changed multiples times. For example, the term was originally in Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(16). At that time, Fla. Stat. § 736.0103(21) defined the term “trustee.”
