The answer to your question is no. Only the deed of trust gets recorded. The deed of trust creates the lien on the real property which secures the loan. It's the deed of trust that notifies any title company and/or prospective purchaser or lender of the lien on the title. That's all that's necessary. The note need not ever be recorded.
