Could not have been easier. Instructions were clear. Guidelines and example were clearly written. Erecording worked fast and let me skip a dreaded trip downtown to be ignored by government employees who hate their jobs.

I purchased he Alabama Correction Warranty Deed Form to correct a mistake in the legal description. However, this form says it must be signed by all who previously signed the deed. One of these people is now deceased. Can I use this form? How would it be different? I would give you 5 stars but wish this issue had been addressed. Thanks.

Thank you for your feedback. From the product description: All parties who signed the prior deed must sign the correction deed in the presence of a notary.
