West Virginia Deed of Trust and Promissory Note

There are three parties in this Deed of Trust:
1- The Trustor (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 action against any person for damages.
In West Virginia, a Deed of Trust (DOT) is the most commonly used instrument to secure a loan. If the DOT has a "Power of Sale" clause, foreclosure can be done non-judicially, saving time and expense, because the trustee doesn't require the court's involvement. This process is called a Trustee Sale. Explained in WV Statute 38-1-3. "Sales under trust deeds."

Proceeds of Trustee Sale: After deducting all costs, fees and expenses of Trustee and of this trust, including the cost of evidence of title in connection with the sale and reasonable attorney's fees, trustee shall apply the proceeds of sale to payment of all sums then secured hereby and all other sums due under the terms hereof, with accrued interest, and the remainder, if any, to the persons legally entitled thereto or as provided by W. VA. ARTICLE 1, 38-1-7.

(38-1-2. Form of deed of trust; memorandum of deed of trust may be recorded.) This Form is fully formatted for W.VA. recording requirements.

What others like you are saying:

Shane T. said: The Transfer on Death Deed form package was very good. But like anything, could use some improvements. There is not enough space to fill more than one beneficiary with any level of additional detail like "as his sole and separate property" The area for the legal description could be a bit bigger and potentially fit many legal descriptions. Or it could be made to simply say "See Exhibit A" as is likely necessary for most anyway. The guide should indicate what "homestead property" means so the user doesn't have to research the legal definition. (which turns out to be obvious, at least in my state, if you live there, it's your homestead.) It would be helpful if an "Affidavit of Death" form were included in the package for instances where the current deed hasn't been updated to reflect a widowed owner as the sole owner before recording with only the one signature.

Carla H. said: This is a very useful site for downloading legal forms - just be sure you're getting the form you need before buying. Unfortunately I selected the wrong form initially and had to buy a 2nd form to correct my error. I saw no way of communicating my error at that point - i.e., loss of one star.
