Selling Your Deed of Trust
A Deed of Trust is a legally binding agreement that deals with property ownership. It’s similar to a traditional mortgage but has some slight differences making it a unique situation.
How Does a Deed of Trust Differ from a Mortgage?
With traditional mortgages, a legally binding agreement is made between two parties: a borrower and a lender. The borrower is the person or entity purchasing the property, and the lender is usually a financial intuition that loans the money to finance the property.
If payments aren’t made to the lender, the property can be foreclosed upon. In order to foreclose on a property, the lender has to go through a judicial process which can take time to make its way through the courts.
A Deed of Trust is an alternative option, but it’s only available in some states. Currently, there are 15 states that allow Deeds of Trust, with California being one of them.
Deeds of Trust differ from traditional mortgages because along with a borrower and lender, a third party is involved in the agreement. This third party is known as a “Trustee.”
A Trustee doesn’t hold any interest in the property. They are usually a company, investor, or person that holds the title of the property until the loan is satisfied between the borrower and lender. And unlike a traditional mortgage agreement, a Deed of Trust foreclosure doesn’t have to go through the courts, which can expedite the foreclosure process.
Selling Deeds of Trust for Cash
If you currently hold a Deed of Trust and receive a stream of recurring payments, you can turn your deed into cash.
Common Reasons for Selling a Deed Trust for Cash
- Wanting cash to pay off debts or have cash for investments
- Freedom from collecting payments
- Heirs or beneficiaries can’t come to an agreement on the property
- The property’s value has declined
- Taxes are delinquent
- Having to deal with a “bad” borrower
Selling your Deed of Trust to a company that specializes in buying Deeds of Trust like Sell My Judgments allows you the financial freedom of not having to wait for monthly payments from the Borrower. Instead, you get a lump sum of cash upfront.
What if the Borrower Stopped Making Payments?
If you’re dealing with a situation where the borrower isn’t making monthly payments as outlined in the initial agreement, this is known as a non-performing note.
The good news is that Sell My Judgments specializes in buying non-performing notes.
