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.

There are three parties to a deed of trust: the borrower (trustor), the lender (beneficiary), and the trustee. The trustee, typically a title agency or other disinterested party, serves two purposes: to initiate the foreclosure process for the lender if the borrower defaults on the loan, and to transfer (reconvey) the property back to the borrower after the debt is paid in full.

The short form deed covers the requirements for most non-institutional lenders. In addition to any other necessary documents, the short form adds another step of recording a fictitious or master deed of trust.

A fictitious/master deed of trust is a blank, unsigned long form deed of trust with a cover sheet attached, requesting recording for reference purposes only. By referencing the recorded instrument information on the fictitious DOT, all rights and obligations of the parties are preserved. Because of this, it’s generally less costly to record the short form DOT.

10 out of 10 on 03/23/14

Said: Very good. It would have been nice to have been able to save the information once it was typed in. That is a function of adobe as I understand but I think there is a software version that allows you to save a protected document. Other than that it was perfect. Also the link to this url did not work in your e mail. So I was required to paste and copy the link in my browser. That is going to keep some folks from submitting the form itself to offer comments. All total 7 out of 10. A C if I were your Professor.
