The statement needs to be sworn and notarized by both parties as to the true consideration in the deed. A Statement of Consideration is NOT needed on the following: Deeds that only convey utility easements, deeds that transfer property through a court action pursuant to divorce proceedings, deeds that convey right-of-ways that involve government agencies, and deeds that correct errors in previous deeds, conveying the same property from the same grantor to the same grantee.

A deed must include:

• The first and second party (grantor and grantee) and their mailing addresses

• A consideration statement.

• A legal description of the property.

• The source of title. If the source of title is a deed or other recorded writing, the deed presented for recording shall refer to the former deed or writing, and give the office, book, or page where it is recorded, as well as the date of the original recording.

• A preparation statement. This should include the name and address of the preparer of the document, and should be clearly labeled (i.e. “This document was prepared by……”). This statement should be signed by the preparer.

• A return mailing address, as well as an address for future tax statements.
The grantor must sign the deed, and the grantor’s signature must be acknowledged.

A deed of correction must include:

• The first and second party (grantor and grantee) and their mailing addresses

• A consideration statement (if the amount of consideration has changed)

• A legal description of the property.

• The source of title. If the source of title is a deed or other recorded writing, the deed presented for recording shall refer to the former deed or writing, and give the office, book, or page where it is recorded, as well as the date of the original recording.

A deed of correction does not convey interest in land. The original grantor and grantee must be the same in a deed of correction. One cannot add, remove, or change a grantor or grantee in a deed of correction. If a deed of correction includes additional parties, a new deed will need to be made, as it is no longer a deed of correction.

The grantor must sign the deed and must have his signature acknowledged. Both the grantor and grantee need to sign the statement of consideration, which also needs to be notarized.
