Lost Note or Deed Bonds

A Lost Note bond or Missing Beneficiary bond is a Surety bond required by statute (CIV § 2941.7) to protect the Trustee or Substitute Trustee of a lost original Promissory Note or in situations where a Promissory Note beneficiary cannot be located. Locating original Promissory Notes can often be challenging especially if it has been many years since the note was given. This scenario often occurs when a bank or lender on a Promissory Note has gone out of business or when a personal lender has moved or passed away.

The need for these bonds arise when a property owner desires to sell or refinance their property and an old Deed of Trust (DOT) pops up on Title. Lenders and Title companies will not proceed with the transaction until the DOT is dealt with and that’s where the bond comes in to the rescue!
