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.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.
