Hey, Brianda! Some states describe the requirements needed to qualify as a trustee, so you would need to check out local laws in order to see if these requirements are met. Other than that, there might be no restriction on who can act as a trustee in a deed of trust. A trustee is usually a legal entity or an unbiased individual such as a lawyer, an attorney, a bank, a professional corporation or LLC.
