Second trust deeds aren’t an issue for homeowners in 36 states. They exist only in the 14 deed of trust states – jurisdictions where mortgages are uncommon and a third party, called a trustee, acts as an intermediary between a lender and a borrower. The trustee holds title to the property until the borrower pays off the promissory note; then he conveys ownership to him. The first trust deed provides for this arrangement; a second trust deed is a junior lien to the first.
Second trust deeds are tied to underlying promissory notes just as first trust deeds are. You borrow an amount equal to a portion or all of your property’s equity. You pay it back with interest over a specified number of years.
A deed of trust is considered the “security instrument” in financing a property because it helps the lender secure the loan’s repayment.
You can obtain up to 65% loan to value including the existing 1st Mortgage. Another advantage to obtaining a 2nd Trust Deed Mortgage is you can get money to improve your home and avoid paying or it over a 30 year period. A final advantage to obtaining a 2nd Trust Deed Mortgage is getting funding, and if intent was Business, please consult your Accountant that it may be a Business write off.
