Best Way EVER to record a warranty deed! It was nice to not have to drive anywhere and find the facility closed or "unable to process due to covid19 and buildings being closed". The correspondence between me and deeds.com was very timely in our back and forth email correspondence, and the processing was all finished in a timely manner. Totally worth the extra $15 that I paid in addition to the recording fee. I would use this again and again. My time and the efficiency of the job completed is worth the money.

I have one suggestion and couple of question

I would think that most TOD's would be from married couples. It would be real helpful to have a example of the I(we) block for married couples.

Why would I check or not check the "property is registered (torrents)"

Do I need a notarized signature of the Grantee

Sorry that this a little late. I'm VERY HAPPY with everything. The deeds paperwork was just what I was looking for. It was very to fill out, it was different than n the folks used years ago. I called the county clerk, and they were very helpful. Thank you for the paperwork it was easy to use and understand.

I like the support documents that go along with the easement template and the fact that the format is specific to a state and county.

I was very pleased with the service and the product. All the extras were a nice addition to my order. With the example and instructions, I was able to fill out my correction deed correctly. I filed it and it was accepted with zero reservations by my clerk and recorder's office. The expected result (which was to remove a name from the current deed) happened almost immediately. I definitely recommend deeds.com .
