There are three parties in a Trust Deed in which the Grantor/Borrower (conveys an interest in real property to a trustee in trust to secure the performance of an obligation the grantor or other person named in the deed owes to a beneficiary.) (ORS 86.705(8))

("Grantor" means the person that conveys an interest in real property by a trust deed as security for the performance of an obligation.) ( ORS 86.705(4))
("Beneficiary")/ Lender (means a person named or otherwise designated in a trust deed as the person for whose benefit a trust deed is given, or the person's successor in interest, and who is not the trustee unless the beneficiary is qualified to be a trustee under ORS 86.713) ( ORS 86.705(2))
("Trustee" means a person, other than the beneficiary, to whom a trust deed conveys an interest in real property, or the person's successor in interest, or an employee of the beneficiary, if the employee is qualified to be a trustee under ORS 86.713) ( ORS 86.705(9)) The guidelines provided explain how to easily choose a trustee.

Trust Deeds are considered advantageous for lenders, foreclosure is done non-judicially (saving time and expense), the process is called "Foreclosure by Advertisement and Sale" defined in ORS 86.735. If the Grantor/Borrower defaults the Beneficiary/Lender can choose to have the Trustee foreclose on the Trust Deed.

This Trust Deed and Promissory Note contain strong default terms. Use these forms for residential property, rental property (up to 4 units), vacant land, condominiums, and planned unit developments.

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.

I was very impressed. I needed a Grant Deed that would comply with Calif. law. I haven't tried to record it yet, but I think it's spot-on. References to statutes very helpful. I'm a retired Idaho attorney, and my first attempt was politely rejected by the recorder. (documentary transfer fee exemption, etc.)

Very fast and efficient. Easy to fill out but was upset the latest tax exemptions ruled in 2014 did not seem to be included. Exclusion of sale to blood relatives, etc. _ the one I needed.

This was so easy and seemless. I wish I had found deeds.com for eRecording sooner! I submitted my documents from the comfort of my office, they were great about communicating in a timely manner with updates. The next day I had copies of my recorded documents! I would highly recommend deeds.com!
