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 in the legal description, misspelled names, accidentally omitted suffixes or middle initials, 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 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 erroneous deed must sign the corrective deed in the presence of a notarial official. If the grantor is married, Arizona requires that both spouses sign the deed (A.R.S. 33-452). Finally, the form must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. Submit the completed corrective deed to the local recording office.

Most transfers of real property are subject to a transfer tax and must be accompanied by an Affidavit of Property Value. However, corrective deeds are exempt from both because the property has already been transferred (A.R.S. 11-1133, 11-1134).

This article is provided for informational purposes only and is not a substitute for legal advice. Contact an attorney with questions about corrective deeds or any other issues related to real property in Arizona.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Thank you for the kind words Jayar. Glad we were able to help.

Beware, you cannot save the information you typed and change it later. It will be a PDF upon saving. So if you need corrections...you have to start all over!

We had hoped, as this was direct through our State recorder's office, State-specific data would be pre-filled in. Also there is no help when transferring the home title from a Revocable Trust to the living Trustee and new spouse (no example given, no help for which code to use). And the example doesn't match the prior deed revision format submitted by our attorney. So, not the best experience. We may have to get an attorney involved...what we were hoping to avoid

I was very happy with my interaction. The county didn't supply the book and page which was what I needed. The tech refunded my money since I didn't get the info I needed. I will use Deeds.com again.

The only problem I had was that it doesn't let you create a file for all documents to go into as one.

I was trying to register a financial statement (non real estate document). There was no link or statement on the home page to indicate that this could be done. All I had to do was to create an account, name and then upload the document. It took me over a day and several phone calls to the local deed recording office to try to figure this out. A simple link or statement to this effect would have saved me a lot of time

What a wonderful and easy task using deeds.com. I searched on line for the proper procedure to file a quit claim deed. It looked to confusing to do mysellf until I found deeds.com. With their instructions, I was able to fill out all the proper forms and file with the court in two days. Saved me at least a thousand dollars if I had an attorney do the same. Thank you. I will definitely use them again.
