Usually, a mortgage is signed for the amount the buyer left unpaid. However, this has serious implications for both parties. Therefore, the Contract provides the same effects without the secondary effects of a mortgage.
- Trustee- the owner that has intentions of selling (seller). The person that transfers property of patrimony to a trust.
- Fiduciary- third party responsible for the property during the time the Contract is valid. A bank, or trusted third party. This person has a restricted right of property and is destined to obtain the purpose established in the Contract (transfer of property at the time it is cancelled). A trusted third party that has a property registered in his name for the period of time the Contract is valid. The fiduciary`s main duty is the administration of the trustee`s property.

- During the time the Contract is valid, the trust would become the owner of the property.
