Trent Bond obtains judgment reforming deed of trust and establishing lien priority

On behalf of an insured lender, Trent Bond obtained a favorable judgment following a bench trial, reforming a deed of trust and establishing lien priority.  At issue was the borrower’s dispute of her intent to encumber the entirety of her property and her contest over the validity of her electronic signature on the underlying promissory note.  The Court found that the borrower intended to encumber the entirety of her property and that she did electronically sign the promissory note on a computer terminal provided at the closing of the loan transaction.
