What is a Deed of Reconveyance?

A Deed of Reconveyance is a document that releases the lien on real property formed through a Deed of Trust, or in some states and situations, a mortgage. Deeds of Reconveyance confirm the repayment of the property loan, and transfer the property from the lender ("trustee"), who legally owned the property, to the borrower ("trustor") who borrowed money to purchase the property.
Once the loan is repaid, the Deed of Reconveyance is created to include details about the property -- such as the party names, recorded information, and legal description -- and is signed by the trustee and recorded with the county where the property is located. Once recorded, the Reconveyance Deed legally transfers ownership of the property from the lender to the borrower.
Note: Depending on what state the property is located in and what type of loan documents were signed, states may require that either a "Deed of Reconveyance" or a "Satisfaction of Mortgage" be filed. These documents are very similar and each provides proof that a mortgage or property loan has been fully repaid. 

When to use a Deed of Reconveyance:

  • You just made your last mortgage payment.
  • You lent someone money to buy a house, and they've repaid you in full.
