- A Deed of Trust is often used instead of a mortgage for purchasing real property except for agricultural farm land.

- 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.
- Attorney's fees payable by a party under the Trust Deed shall include those awarded by an appellate court.
