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 the 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.

This form may be used for residential property, condominiums, second homes, vacant land, planned unit developments, small commercial and rental property with up to 4 units, if more than 4 units-attach our assignment of leases and rents form.

This DOT contains a Power of Sale Clause allowing for a non-judicial foreclosure, saving time and expense for the lender. The promissory note can be used for installment or balloon payments. A deed of trust and promissory note containing stringent default terms can be beneficial to the Beneficiary/Lender.

(California Long Form Deed of Trust Package includes forms, guidelines, and completed examples) For use in California only.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

I was extremely pleased with this experience, which literally took a minimum amount of time. One recommendation: make certain that when documents are uploaded that they have been received in the appropriate file. The lack of clarity caused me to upload twice or three times. Thank you.
