Using your site made gifting personal property (land) so quick and easy. The forms were presented ready to complete and included detailed instructions. The "completed form" example was helpful. I definitely recommend your site to anyone who does not wish to pay expensive lawyer fees.

This site was easy to use for access to State forms for filing in Montmorency County clerks office. Not only did I find claim form but a sample claim was available for assisting on how to complete your form correctly. Found this so very useful for us (public resident) to fill in the form as a .PDF file that prints out typed form - rather than handwritten entries. There is a fee but your access is always available on internet to this site in the future. Saved me time using this site and My filed form looks professional. You have access to several other forms if needed.

I had no clue how to write an easement termination, and I did not want to pay an attorney for it, so I ordered the instructions and form. It was very helpful to have a completed sample. I am satisfied and confident in the document I produced.

I think it needs to be easier to enlarge print to fit an 8"x12" sheet of paper. Printing off samples is difficult to read as it is too small

It's an instant download. I was very pleased that it included instructions and any necessary additional forms. Much easier than spending 3 hours on a county assessor's website searching for every single form. A good deal and I don't know how Deeds.com keeps up with thousands of counties. The fillable .pdf capability is a great enhancement.
