What if the Borrower (Trustor) calls us to pay off or bring the loan current?

You should direct all of their calls to our office for the exact amount of payoff or reinstatement. We forward this payoff to you for your review and approval. You should not accept any money from the Trustor once the foreclosure is started. In accepting money directly, you run the risk of invalidating the foreclosure and you may have to start the process over by recording a new Notice of Default and waiting out the three month reinstatement period.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost? Are Trustee Fees regulated by statute?

A maximum fee of 1% of the principal amount due on the loan (plus costs) is allowed by statute. However, our fees are negotiable. Please contact us for a quote. We typically require a deposit of 1/3 of the amount on recording the Notice of Default, 1/3 on recording the Notice of Trustee Sale and the final 1/3 on conducting the Trustee Sale. In addition, there are costs incurred of title, mailing, posting the property and publication of notices. These fees vary and are typically between $500 - $1,500, depending on the amount of the note and required mailings. These fees are all chargeable to the borrower. If they reinstate the loan or payoff the loan our fees are included so you are reimbursed.
