Deed of Trust

A deed of trust is a legal document used to secure interest in real estate. Some states use trust deeds instead of mortgages. Although these two documents are similar in nature there is one primary difference. With a deed of trust the lender retains the property title until the loan is paid in full. With a mortgage, the buyer holds the title while the lender is provided with a property lien.

Deed of trust mortgages involve three parties and include the borrower, lender and trustee. The borrower is provided with a mortgage loan through the lender and must designate the lender as beneficiary to the legal title. The trustee retains the property title throughout the duration of the loan.
