Question: Do townships go by state laws and if so what about a trust fund on the property that states it can't be split unless owned for ten years?

Answer: Yes, Townships must operate pursuant to Michigan Law. You mention that you may wish to divide property. If you wish to do so, you have a certain number of divisions allowed by the Michigan Land Division Act. I would recommend seeing a real estate attorney and enlisting his help to get the property divided. Also, there are other ways to divide property. Site plan Condominiums and Subdivisions are two examples.
