Does a DEED OF TRUST need to be notarized?
In real estate in the United States, a deed of trust or trust deed is a deed wherein equitable title in real property is transferred to a trustee, which holds it as security for a loan (debt) between a borrower and lender. The legal title remains with the borrower. The borrower is referred to as the trustor, while the lender is referred to as the beneficiary.
