Alaska Correction Deed

What happens when there is an error in your deed? What can you do to fix it? One option may be filing a corrective deed.

A corrective deed is an instrument used to correct a small error in a deed that has been recorded at an earlier date. Corrections can only be made to non-material errors, causing no actual change in the substance of the deed. Common mistakes include typographical errors, accidentally omitted suffixes or middle initials, misspelled street names, etc.

Major, or material, changes to the substance of the deed have a legal effect in how property is titled, and therefore require a new deed. Adding or removing a grantee, for example, or making significant changes to the legal description, may all require a new deed of conveyance. When in doubt about the gravity of an error and whether a correction deed is the appropriate vehicle to address it, consult with a lawyer.

On the corrective deed, give the recording information from the previously filed document, then identify which section contains the error. Provide the correct details in the body of the deed. The corrective deed states the nature of the error and recites the date and recording information of the erroneous deed.

For the corrective deed to be valid, all parties who signed the prior deed must sign the corrective deed in the presence of a notarial official. If the grantor is married, Alaska requires that both spouses sign the deed (AS 34.15.010). Finally, the deed form should meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. Submit the completed corrective deed, along with any necessary supporting materials, to the local recording office for entry into the public records.

STANLEY F. said: Forms were spot on and able to save over $100 by not going to an attorney to complete the same documents. There were templates on how forms are supposed to be completed. You just need a notary to sign.
