ESTATES AND PROTECTED INDIVIDUALS CODE (EXCERPT)
Act 386 of 1998


700.8206 Application to existing relationships.

Sec. 8206.

(1) Except as otherwise provided in article VII, all of the following apply on the effective date of the amendatory act that added this section:

(a) The amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section apply to all trusts created before, on, or after that effective date.

(b) The amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section apply to all judicial proceedings concerning trusts commenced on or after that effective date.

(c) The amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section apply to judicial proceedings concerning trusts commenced before that effective date unless the court finds that application of a particular provision of the amendments and additions would substantially interfere with the effective conduct of the judicial proceedings or prejudice the rights of the parties, in which case the particular provision of the amendments and additions does not apply and the superseded provisions apply.

(d) Any rule of construction or presumption provided in the amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section applies to trust instruments executed before that effective date unless there is a clear indication of a contrary intent in the terms of the trust.

(2) The amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section do not impair an accrued right or affect an act done before that effective date. If a right is acquired, extinguished, or barred upon the expiration of a prescribed period that has commenced to run under any other statute before that effective date, that statute continues to apply to the right even if it has been repealed or superseded.

(3) If any provision of the amendments and additions to article VII enacted by the amendatory act that added this section conflicts with any provision of 1846 RS 63, MCL 555.1 to 555.27, the provision of article VII prevails.
