A Deed of Trust is commonly used in North Carolina to secure a loan. Foreclosure can be done non-judicially, saving time and expense. This process is called a Foreclosure by action. The procedure for power of sale foreclosure is contained in Article 2A in Chapter 45 of the North Carolina General Statutes.

There are three parties in this Deed of Trust:
1- The Grantor (Borrower)
2- Beneficiary (Lender) and a
3- Trustee (Neutral Third Party)

Basic Concept. The Trustor (Borrower) conveys property title to a Trustee (Neutral Party). A Trustee or beneficiary/Lender can take an action against any person for damages.
This form can be used by a party selling/financing their own house, rental, condominium or small office building. A Promissory Note and Deed of Trust combined with stringent default terms, can be beneficial to the Lender. The Lender can choose whether the borrower must use the property as their primary residence for the term of the Loan. This can be advantageous for a someone selling a house. Take for example; the borrower moves out and rents the home to someone who diminishes its value or in the case of a small commercial space the Lender wouldn't want the borrower living there because of a financial stress.

The Trustee allows the Grantor/Borrower to collect rents until there is a default. Upon the occurrence of any such event of default, the permission given to Grantor/Borrower to collect such rents, income, maintenance fees and other benefits from the property shall automatically terminate. This can be powerful tool for the Beneficiary/Lender.

The Beneficiary/Lender or Trustee shall have the right and license to go on and into the Subject Real Property to inspect it in order to determine whether the provisions of the Deed of Trust are being kept and performed. This is important because Grantor/Borrower shall take reasonable care of the Subject Real Property and shall maintain them in good repair and condition.

I would absolutely use this service again. It was very convenient and I was pleasantly surprised at how responsive the staff was letting me know updates to my recording package. Also, my documents recorded immediately. I did have trouble uploading my document in the beginning because I didn't realize it had to be a pdf file. Once I figured that out, it was immediately accepted. Great service!

Ease and speed of recording are remarkable. This is especially true of deeds with problems: I often get feedback within minutes and can correct problems immediately and still complete the filing in the same day. I wish more counties accepted electronic filing! It would be helpful to list counties that do/do not accept electronic filing so I would not have to upload documents to find out my effort was fruitless.

Navigating the site was fine, but the service was not able to find my deed. Still have not received my refund.

Reply from Staff

Thanks for your feedback Kenneth. Sorry we were not able to pull the deed for your property. We voided your payment on December 28, 2018. Sometimes, depending on your financial institution, it can take a few days for the pending charge (hold) to expire.

Super impressed!! For me to get back my recorded document in one day was awesome. I needed it for a foreclosure and knew if I mailed it in to the Clerk's office I more than likely would not get it back in time. Also the fact that you had no problem with me having a one-time document to record is a plus. I will be using you in the future for my recording needs. Thank you.

The form was exactly what we needed and the directions were spot on and perfectly clear. Filling out government forms can be an experience filled with anxiety but deeds.com made it easy and practically worry free.
