Fee Schedule
Below is the fee schedule for accounts at Quest Trust Company. The fee schedule is one of the four components required to open a self-directed account with Quest Trust Company, but can also be used to change fee or payment options at a later date. The Fee schedules are included in the respective Account Opening Starter Kits.

Transfer or Rollover Funds

A “Rollover Form” is needed to properly document and accept funds when an IRA holder is moving from a qualified plan (i.e. 401(k), 403(b), 457 etc.) into an IRA. Rollovers are initiated by the account holder. When initiating a rollover, the client will need to contact their qualified plan administrator for further direction.


    A “Transfer Form” is needed when a client needs to transfer from their current custodians IRA into a like IRA account at Quest Trust Company, Inc. (i.e. Traditional IRA to Traditional IRA). Transfers are initiated by the receiving custodian, therefore if you are transferring to Quest, we assist with initiating the movement of funds, and when transferring out of Quest Trust Company, you would work with the custodian that will receive the IRA funds.

    A “ In-Kind Transfer Form
      ” is different from a normal Transfer Form. Whereas the Transfer form is needed when only moving cash, the Inkind Transfer Form is needed when a client needs to transfer an asset from their current custodian’s IRA into a like IRA account at Quest Trust Company, Inc. (i.e. Traditional IRA to Traditional IRA). Transfers are initiated by the receiving custodian, but there will most likely be other steps the client will have to take when planning to move the ownership from one IRA custodian to another, i.e. reregistration of an asset. Therefore, if you are transferring to Quest, we assist with initiating the movement of any assets (and funds, if needed), and when transferring assets out of Quest Trust Company, you would work with the custodian that will receive the IRA funds.

In the event you choose to sell your investment property, a note is paid off, or you have received all dividends from your investment for example, our office will need you to complete this form to let us know to close out your asset. If this form is not completed, your investment will remain active inside of your IRA even if you no longer hold the asset. If the investment is only receiving a partial payment at the time, we also require this form be completed to inform Quest not to close the asset, but rather just adjust the value once funds are received.

    A “Request for Payoff Form” is needed when your IRA holds a note investment and it is ready to be paid off. This form is used to provide Quest and all over applicable third parties information about the upcoming payoff, such as the borrower information, when to expect the payments, and how much might be sent. As a reminder, like all investment documents, any payments made back to the IRA must have the correct vesting. 

     

    A “Direction of Sale Packet” is needed when your IRA holds a real estate investment and it is ready to be sold. This form is used to provide Quest and all over applicable third parties information about the upcoming sale and then proceed with the execution of sale. The first form is the Direction of Sale form, which is an internal form giving Quest information about who plans to purchase the investment and the asset information. Along with that form, there will be a helpful checklist including items our office will also need to review including: a Sales Contract, HUD-1 Settlement Statement/Closing Disclosure, Deed, and any other documents the buyer is required to sign at closing. Once all the proper documents are signed and the client has given their “Read & Approved” signature, Quest will work with the third party closing agent to close your real estate sale.
