How long do trust indentures remain in effect?
Most indentures are drafted with perpetual lifespans and have clear provisions for renewal. However, the length of time indentures remain in effect can be determined by a variety of factors. First, some indentures stipulate that they are tied into a particular parcel of property. In this sense, the indenture is said to run with the land. The indenture is said to run with the land because it will always run with the land, even if the land is sold from one owner to another. Secondly, some indentures specifically detail the timeline for which the restrictions and bylaws are valid. Lastly, if an indenture has not been enforced or maintained for a long duration of time, a judge can deem the indenture invalid due to lack of enforcement.
