If you are the trustee of a trust, and if you must sign anything on behalf of the trust, you should always sign in your capacity as a trustee, and not in your individual capacity. For example, John Smith would sign, “John Smith, Trustee.” By signing as a Trustee, in you will not be individually liable for that action, provided that such action is within the scope of your authority under the trust. If you do not sign a contract as the “trustee” and the contract does not specifically exclude your personal liability, then you could be held personally liable under the contract.
