Idaho Correction Deed

Use the correction deed to correct an error in a previously recorded quitclaim, warranty or grant deed in Idaho.

Errors in a previously recorded deed can be corrected by re-recording the corrected deed or by preparing and recording a new correction deed. This helps to prevent title flaws, which may cause problems when the current owner attempts to sell the property. The correction deed does not convey title but confirms the prior conveyance.

For small errors, corrections can be made directly on the original deed and initialed by the signors before the deed is re-recorded. For lengthier errors, the best option is to prepare and record a new corrective deed, executed from the original grantor to the original grantee. Apart from supplying the corrected information, it must identify the reason for correcting and reference the prior deed by date, recording number and title.

When correcting the legal description or plat identification, both the grantor and the grantee should sign the corrective deed. If the original grantor is not available for some reason, an affidavit, signed by the grantee and indexed under the name of both the grantor and grantee, may be the best way to effect a correction.

For certain types of changes, however, a correction deed may not be appropriate. Adding or removing a grantee, for example, or changing the manner in which title is held, or making material changes to the legal description, especially deleting a portion of the originally transferred property, may all require a new deed of conveyance instead of a correcting the original deed. When in doubt about how to correct an error, consult with a lawyer.

Kristen H. said: This was such a money saver. I was told by someone at the courthouse that I had to have a lawyer prepare the paper work for my mom. They stated that family members couldn't prepare the papers. I was hopeful when I found that I could prepare the survivorship affidavit on Deeds. I was able to prepare everything myself and had no issues today when at the courthouse for all the changes. Thank you!

Miljana K. said: I was on several sites but this was the easiest and cost effective. No bait and switch like on several sites where you get a "free trial" and then they started billing you monthly for legal services. Excellent.

Philip S. said: You're service saved the day! I had gone to several lawyers and title companies who all said, at a Minimum, preparing a deed costs $1000... Through your service and some work reading about the requirements as well as calling my county clerks office, I was able to complete the deed and it read accepted and recorded today! Thanks so much.
