Typically where there is a written trust deed signed by the trustor, he or she on the back of the document agrees to maintain a policy of insurance in place on the security for the loan and if not, the failure could be deemed a breach of the trust deed making the loan due and payable after notice is given and payment not made in a certain period of time.

In most circumstances like what you have written the beneficiary pays the insurance premiums for the security and surcharges the trustor for the fees. I suggest that the recourse that you are writing about would be stated in the trust deed (usually back of it) that you are writing about.
