Statute 18-50-101(2)) A power of sale allows for a non-judicial foreclosure in the case of default, saving time and expense. If Lender invokes the power of sale, Lender shall execute or cause Trustee to execute the written notice of the occurrence of any event of default and Lender's election to cause the Property to be sold and shall cause such notice to be recorded in each county in which the Property or some portion thereof is located. Lender or Trustee shall mail copies of such notice in the manner prescribed by applicable law. 18-50-103.

We were referred to the site by banking friend. It does take time to read through and figure out what a person needs, form-wise, to accomplish the goal. Once that was decided, check out and the download was very easy. What a great savings in cost and time.

I got exactly what I paid for. No fraudulent transaction on my card. I like that. This is an excellent service. Straight and to the point help. That e-recording process looks like a winner. When I get my forms filled out I might use that.

Download was easy to complete, but difficult to revisit site to review purchased forms on line. Suggest you download everything at one sitting to make sure you get everything you need from your purchase.

Forms were spot on and able to save over $100 by not going to an attorney to complete the same documents. There were templates on how forms are supposed to be completed. You just need a notary to sign.
