A Deed of Trust is a (security instrument securing the payment or satisfaction of any debt or other obligation.) (MRS 443.005) This is often considered a preferred method of financing real property because foreclosures are done non-judicially with no right of redemption, through a trustee sale, saving time (typically 60-90 days if uncontested) and expense. This Deed of Trust contains a "Power of Sale" clause, in the case of default the borrower(s) have pre-authorized the sale of the property. Without a "Power of Sale" a judicial foreclosure will likely have to be performed. (See 443.290 Mortgages and security agreements with power of sale)

The "Promissory Note" defines the terms of the loan, Principle owed, interest rate charged, default rate (interest charged if Note is in Default), late payment fees, etc.

These forms are flexible, use for residential, rental units, vacant land, small office and commercial. A "Special Provisions" section allows the lender to further customize the package to his/her needs. Can be used when existing liens are in place.

Fully formatted for recording. (See MRS 443.035. Recording of instrument required)
A Deed of Trust and Promissory Note that includes stringent default terms can be beneficial the lender/debt holder.

(Missouri DOT Package includes forms, guidelines, and completed examples)

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 trying to register a financial statement (non real estate document). There was no link or statement on the home page to indicate that this could be done. All I had to do was to create an account, name and then upload the document. It took me over a day and several phone calls to the local deed recording office to try to figure this out. A simple link or statement to this effect would have saved me a lot of time

I got a blank, a sample and detailed instructions, I'm happy. If the recorder's office had a form as they like to see, with your name as they like to see, and the property name as they like to see, no one would ever pay a lawyer for this but a little time to look up the exact names and this package you're all set. I recommend this because, while it isn't difficult, making a mistake could be very bad so getting the details right for a particular county is well worth the cost.

Our firm is working remotely and a lot of court services are limited with the corona-virus shutdowns, but we needed to record a Deed at the last minute. There was no other way we'd could get it done that quick without Deeds.com

(staff) helped us work out some kinks and we got it recorded in less than 1 business day!

Thank you!
