|Deed of Trust (Idaho)|
Transfer title of a real estate property from a seller to a trustee with this Deed of Trust for the State of Idaho. A Deed of Trust is often used instead of a mortgage in the sale and purchase of real property other than agricultural farm land. Under the Deed of Trust, title is conveyed by the seller to a trustee instead of to the purchaser. Title to the property is held as security to ensure the purchaser's performance of its obligations (including payment of the purchase price, maintenance and upkeep of the property, payment of taxes, etc). If the purchaser defaults in payment, the balance becomes due and payable and the trustee may sell the property. The Deed of Trust contains uniform covenants regarding payments, funds for taxes and insurance, prior mortgages, hazard insurance, occupancy as principal residence, care and maintenance of the property, protection of the lender's security, and other standard clauses. This form can only be used for properties that are not more than 40 acres in size, or are located within a city or town. This Idaho Deed of Trust form is provided in MS Word format, and is fully editable to meet your needs.
