What is the California Correction Deed?

In California, a corrective or correction deed is the most widely accepted instrument used to correct an error in a recorded deed.

The California Recorder’s Association distinguishes between errors considered material and those that are not, which may require different correction scenarios. Material errors constitute actual changes, such as changing the legal description or the adding a name; in many counties, they require re-signing and re-acknowledgement of the document, as well as resubmission of the PCOR form and/or new transfer taxes. Typographical errors, on the other hand, may be adjusted with a less involved correction. For example, some counties accept a re-submission of the original deed with corrections, along with a cover page that contains a correction statement, error identification, and clear reference to the previously recorded deed. Depending on the error type and gravity, re-acknowledgement may not be required under such circumstances.

Many counties, however, require, or at least prefer, the filing of a new instrument, a correction or corrected deed, when eliminating a flaw in the title. Furthermore, there are situations when a minor typographical error in the name can lead to major problems when trying to sell the property. So correcting any title flaws or ambiguous names is advisable as soon as possible, and the correction deed is the clearest and cleanest way to achieve that, which furthermore guarantees that the state’s legibility requirements are met (GOV 27361.7).

The correction deed becomes part of the chain of title and must make explicit reference to the earlier recorded deed by instrument number and date (GOV 27361.6). In some counties and for some types of errors, resubmit the Preliminary Change of Ownership Record (PCOR), which usually contains an option for name changes in section one, and sometimes also an option for corrections in general. As is required with any deed submitted for recording in California, the current address for tax statements must be furnished with the new deed. When submitting a correction deed, which is a new deed to go on record, have it acknowledged in any case.

The transfer tax is applied at the county level and therefore not imposed uniformly throughout all California counties. Each county has enacted its own local transfer tax ordinance and many counties have published their own guidelines regarding transfer tax exemptions.

Some counties require the filing of a tax exemption affidavit and usually have a form on their website. When in doubt, enter the required information on the correction deed itself and on the affidavit. A correction deed is usually exempt from transfer tax. Check with your local recording office for the county’s specific transfer tax affidavit form.

Patricia Barrett Said: The primary form itself was great except that it was password protected which caused me to be unable to go back and correct typos after I had exited without starting over, and had three deeds to do with 90% of same language and had to do three different times. Seemed rather expensive not to be more user friendly.
