Georgia Correction Deed

Use this correction deed to correct an error in a previously executed and recorded deed.

Correction deeds are used to adjust the earlier deed when that document contains minor errors of omission or typographical errors, sometimes called scrivener's mistakes. For example, a misspelled name, an omitted or wrong middle initial, a minor error in the property description, or an omitted execution date.

The correction deed, also called deed of correction or deed of confirmation, must state that its sole purpose is to correct a specific error, which is usually identified by type. For example: an error in the grantor's name, or an error in the grantor's marital status.

Once the correction deed is recorded, it will relate back to the date of the original deed. So it is not necessarily a good idea to re-execute the original deed or to execute and record a different type of deed, such as a quitclaim deed, to correct an error. Both of these cannot relate back to the date of the original deed that needs to be corrected. Only the deed of correction is so closely linked to the prior document that all corrections are effective as of the date of the original recorded instrument.

Michael T. said: This site was recommended to me. The deed worked just fine for recording a property transfer (Warranty Deed). What I like is that there is a 1 time fee, not a subscription. I would highly recommend. It saved us $2000 in closing costs and fees.
