Use a correction or corrective deed to clear up a title flaw in a deed recorded in Illinois. This form allows for correction of errors in one or multiple sections of the deed.

When correcting an error in a deed in Illinois, there are two basic options: 1) re-record the original deed with corrections made on the face of it by striking out the wrong item; or 2) record a correction or corrective deed. While some counties prefer re-recording the original deed, others recommend the cleaner recording of a new deed. So it is always a good idea to check with the local recorder's office. The gravity of the error and correction it requires also will determine which option to choose. Use the re-recording of the original deed primarily for smaller typographical mistakes.

When correcting a minor error and re-recording the prior deed, use the original deed only, strike through the wrong information, and write the correction down close to it and by hand. Usually, a cover page must be added, stating the important identifiers, as well as the reason for re-recording. For a more involved error, the correction deed might be a better option. Except for the corrected error, it restates and confirms all information of the prior deed, referencing it by date, recording number, and identifying the corrected error by type. In terms of recording fees, there may be a small difference between the two options in some counties.

A corrective deed is exempt from transfer tax according to 35 ILCS 200/35-41 (d). Add a sentence stating this exemption to the cover page when re-recording the original deed. On the corrective deed form, a tax statement, along with a line for the signature of the buyer, seller, or a representative, serves that purpose.

Needed to remove a deceased person from my mother's title. I live in another state. Deeds.com made it SO EASY to accomplish. I loved the example forms showing me how to fill out the forms that were provided. It went incredibly well at the County offices (all 3 departments!). Definitely will use Deeds.com again!

I used the Oklahoma Gift Deed transferring property intra-family, and found it easy to complete. I could not find an Oklahoma Affidavit for the new law re citizenship verification, 60 O.S. Sec 121 and found it at another site that was not a fill in online. Oh well. Site was easy to navigate.

The forms were easy to use but there was a software issue that made it impossible to get the county name to appear on the form in the correct place. It made the deed look a little sloppy

Absolutely great. The staff is responsive and knowledgeable. The online interface is excellent. The total cost for finalizing the sale on our property (minus state filing fees) was $39. A wonderful experience.

I am so glad I found this resource! As the Executor of a family members estate I wanted to save money by bypassing a lawyer as it seemed pretty straight forward to tranfer a Life Estate to the remainderman. (I had original deeds). But talking with 3 different states and 4 different counties - none of which seemed to need the same documents, I was almost ready to dump this in a lawyer's lap. This resource makes it simple!
