Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure

Used by owners to voluntarily convey the title of their property to the mortgagee/beneficiary (lender) to avoid the negative credit consequences of a foreclosure. Lenders are generally reluctant to accept a “deed in lieu” unless the title is free and clear of any other encumbrances junior to theirs and the owners execute an estoppel affidavit acknowledging that they are acting volitionally, with informed consent.
