A deed of trust is a legal document that creates a lien on a property to secure a debt. It is similar to a mortgage, but there are some key differences. The borrower (trust or) transfers title of the property to a third party (trustee) as security for the loan. The trustee holds the title until the loan is repaid in full, at which time the trustee will re-convey title to the borrower.
