Seller Carry Back Trust Deeds

Seller carry back trust deeds are used when property owners provide financing to sellers. Also known as seller carry back financing, trust deeds secure the property until private financing has been repaid. Sellers can elect to carry all or a portion of real estate financing. This technique is often used when buyers are unable to obtain financing through a traditional lending source.

Three parties are involved when seller carry back trust deeds are used. These include the Trustor, Beneficiary and Trustee. The property owner or seller is referred to as the Trustor. The individual or entity that receives income from the mortgage note is referred to as the Beneficiary. Beneficiaries can be a private party or a lending institution such as a bank or credit union. The person who holds legal title to the real estate is referred to as the Trustee. Depending on the circumstances, the Trustor can also be the Trustee and Beneficiary.

Lease Option

Lease option is a form of financing used to purchase real estate. Instead of obtaining a mortgage note through traditional lenders, buyers pay sellers 'option money' to secure the right to purchase the property at a later date. The purchase price may be predetermined or the buyer may agree to purchase the home for current market value when the lease option expires.
