Utah Deed of Trust and Promissory Note

A deed of trust (DOT), is a document that conveys title to real property to a trustee as security for a loan until the Trustor/borrower repays the Beneficiary/lender according to terms defined in an attached promissory note. In Utah a Deed of Trust with "Power of Sale" is the most favored lending instrument, foreclosures can be non-judicially, saving time and expense.

There are Three parties in a Deed of Trust
("Beneficiary" means the person named or otherwise designated in a trust deed as the person for whose benefit a trust deed is given, or his successor in interest. (Utah Code 57-1-19(1)) Also known as Lender
("Trustor" means the person conveying real property by a trust deed as security for the performance of an obligation.) (Utah Code 57-1-19(2)) Also known as borrower
("Trustee" means a person to whom title to real property is conveyed by trust deed, or his successor in interest. Utah Code 57-1-19(4))

In the case of default on loan, the (Trustee is given the power of sale by which the trustee may exercise and cause the trust property to be sold in the manner provided in Sections 57-1-24 and 57-1-27, after a breach of an obligation for which the trust property is conveyed as security; or, at the option of the beneficiary, a trust deed may be foreclosed in the manner provided by law for the foreclosure of mortgages on real property.) (57-1-23)
