I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

This is a great service.
I submitted the information and the next day my deed had been recorded.
Online recording during these times is the most sensible way to record deeds.

I never could even think to solve an important issue involving even overseas individuals without even a lawyer within 24 h. This service works for real and I'll keep using it from now for any future needs, referring to and proposing it as a legitimate, trusted real Optimus service. I'm extremely satisfied and being a Public Official myself I got to say that these guys have really impressed me!

Order Process: 5 Stars - very easy
Material Received: 2 Stars
Issues:
1. Printing- Document would not print in format displayed. Format would continually shrink to approx 2/3 size thus not useable for formal doc submission to County Records office.
2. Document Format- Data insertion fields (addresses) were not of correct size for data input. I needed a 4 line input space but was limited to only 3 lines. Also, Date field (year) was mis-oriented in-so-much that the 3rd digit (inputted) overlapped on 2nd digit (pre-printed) and also was of noticeably different font.
3. Useability- Hand-written input space provided (for Notary) was deficient in space and spacing. It was a challenge to utilize the space available to complete fully and maintain legibility.

Overall - the document worked marginally as advertised, I did need to re-write the entire document myself. It is a good concept but I'd recommend that Deeds company improve the downloaded forms for actual useability, readability, functionability.
regards,
Jim S

Arrived at your site from my county's government site. Saw that all the forms I think I need were included in one package deal, hopefully its the correct package. I

Although I've not looked into other aspects of the site, retrieving the forms was pretty easy.

Thank you
