California Long Form Deed of Trust

A deed of trust (DOT), also known as a trust deed, is a document that conveys title to real property to a trustee as security for a loan until the grantor (borrower) repays the lender according to terms defined in an attached promissory note. It's similar to a mortgage, but differs in that mortgages only include two parties (borrower and lender). The laws of each state determine whether to use a deed of trust or a mortgage.

The long form is typically used by institutional lenders. In addition to any other documents required for recording, a completed promissory note must accompany the long form DOT.
