In a Deed of Trust, the trustee is an independent third party who holds conditional title on behalf of the lender for the purpose of either reconveying the property back to the borrower after the loan is repaid or selling the property if the borrower defaults on the loan. Trustee's can be replaced for many reasons, incapacity, incompetency, death, etc. Often a lender will substitute a trustee with a firm or corporation that will be conducting a foreclosure.

NCG 45-10. States:
In addition to the rights and remedies now provided by law, the noteholders may, in their discretion, substitute a trustee whether the trustee then named in the instrument is the original or a substituted trustee or a holder or owner of any or all of the obligations secured thereby, by the execution of a written document properly recorded pursuant to Chapter 47

This form is executed by the beneficiary/lender for the substitution of a trustee, it includes an optional foreclosure clause if needed for that purpose.

(North Carolina AOST Package includes form, guidelines, and completed example)

I think it needs to be easier to enlarge print to fit an 8"x12" sheet of paper. Printing off samples is difficult to read as it is too small

Hopefully, I am on the correct site to transfer ownership of a time share to my son. I am a senior, and this site is easy to follow if I am on the correct site. : )

Hard to find, obscure, forms were available. I did not think I was going to be able to find them, let alone find such high quality docs, great job!

Quite simple and easy.

Only one critique: It would be easier if the names of the PDF would reflect the name of the deed/form such as 'Controlling tax return' rather than '1579101185SF56863.pdf'.

However I love downloading forms rather than mail.

I had overwhelming emotions taking my deceased wife's name off my condo, so it took me a year to steel myself to submit the form. I filed in Multnomah county, OR which also requires a cover sheet documented here: https://www.multco.us/recording/recording-requirements But, I'm totally happy with the service and quality from Deeds.com getting me what I needed to get this done.

Quick, easy, thorough, reasonable price. Much better than trying to contact a paralegal (who do not usually respond quickly, it seems)
