                             This Deed of Trust is an agreement under which a debtor (or borrower) conveys the right of
                             ownership of his or her real property to a trustee (often a title company) as a security for the
                             sum advanced by a lender. The terms of the deed provide that the transfer of legal title to
                             the trustee will be void on the timely payment of the debt. If the borrower defaults on the
                             payment of the debt, the trustee is empowered by the deed to sell the property and pay the
                             lender the proceeds to satisfy the debt. The deed of trust is the document that is recorded
                             in the public records. This document should be used by borrowers or lenders located in
                             Illinois in the financing of real estate transactions.
