Deeds of Trust are the preferred method of securing debt on property in Colorado, if the Deed of Trust includes a proper power of sale clause the lender can pursue a public trustee foreclosure in the case of default. The borrower pre-authorizes the sale of property to pay off the balance on a loan in the event of the their default.
("Deed of trust" means a security instrument containing a grant to a public trustee together with a power of sale.) ( 38-38-100.3(7))

A promissory note is a promise to pay and includes things such as interest rates, default rates, late fees, penalties, etc. The Deed of Trust makes the promissory note a debt secured by a lien on the subject property. In Colorado a promissory note must include the loan amount, payment schedule and time frame. Both borrowers and lenders must sign.

For use in Colorado only on residential property, rental property, condominiums, vacant land, second homes and planned units.

This is the first time that I have used this service. An employee at the Clerk and Register office in Arizona suggested that I try Deeds.com to find the form I needed and the county office could not provide. I am a licensed Realtor in Colorado with a 43-year career and this service has not been necessary in my own state but it was extremely helpful in finding a form in Arizona. Five star rating for the very user-friendly website!

It was very difficult to maneuver through your website the wording on certain things are very difficult to figure out. I can't seem to get through to one place that I want versus what I don't want. I think it needs to be a little more explanatory and I am a college graduate so it's not like I'm stupid or anything. Thank you

5stars for prompt and fast! Website needs work. Hard to navigate for first time users and hard to find where to pay. Emails are more clear than the "message center". Not sure what happened to my other documents, lol
