California Deed of Trust Form

The California trust deed is a deed used in connection with a mortgage loan. It is the deed that shows that the lender has an interest in the property while the landowner is paying the mortgage and can take over the property in the unfortunate event that the landowner can no longer pay the mortgage. A trust deed is on file with the county recorder along with a deed showing that the owner was granted the property.
