Good after I figured out the form process. Hopefully I won't be charged for two as I redid the request thinking I might have made a mistake in the first request.

Hello,
I like how easy the form is to follow.
I'm unsure however of how to proceed as what I am trying to do is have my name added to the deed so in event of death I have ownership.

I was skeptical when I first came upon this website. Not sure why I had such a negative feeling, but after I received the printed deed I felt relieved and completely satisfied. This is a great website for everyone who wouldn't want to retrieve their deed in person and worth the reasonable fee.
