Trust deed

Agreement between trustee and borrower setting out terms of a bond.

Trust Deed

1. In real estate, an agreement in which the title to the property is held in a trust until the mortgage is paid. A trust deed is not given to the homeowner in order to provide an extra amount of security for the lender; the trustee for a trust deed does nothing except in the event of default, in which case the trustee sells the real estate.

2. An agreement stating the terms of a trust. A trust deed is most common when mutual funds are held in trust, and outlines the responsibilities and restrictions on the fund.
