Frequently asked questions:

What is a Trust Deed? A Trust Deed is the most widely accepted means in California of pledging real estate as security for a loan. A Trust Deed is recorded to secure a promissory note signed by the borrower. If the terms of the note are not met, the Trust Deed grants the lender the right to have the borrower’s property sold to repay the debt. The California Department of Real Estate has published a fine booklet describing Trust Deeds. Click Here to view it.

Documents you will receive showing that your investment is secured?

Shortly after making your investment, you receive copies of the following documents:
  1. The promissory note signed by the borrower with an assignment showing your fractionalized interest in the note. The borrower’s credit and ability to repay the loan are thoroughly checked by CRCC.
  2. The recorded deed of trust and an assignment of the deed of trust showing your fractional interest in the note. CRCC obtains appraisals of all properties to determine that there is sufficient value and equity in the property to provide a comfortable margin of safety.
  3. A copy of the title insurance policy insuring the validity and condition of the borrower’s title and the priority of your loan.
CRCC always verifies that the property is sufficiently insured to protect the loan.
