Deeds of Trust

Transactions involving deeds of trust are normally structured so that the lender gives the borrower the money to buy a piece of property.

There are different types of Deeds of Trust including what is called a Short Form Deed of Trust. A Deed of Trust always must be notarized and then recorded with the county recorder. County recorders closely scrutinize the quality of the notary seal on the document or certificate. County recorders have been known to reject a document if there is even a small smudge or faintness in the notary seal.

It is important to know that you cannot deduct any mortgage interest on your taxes unless your property is secured by a deed of trust.

A Deed of Trust is called a "Mortgage" in many states. Every loan package includes a Deed of Trust. They vary in length from two to 22 pages.
