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.

Very helpful and informative. It has saved me time going to get the forms at county recorder / clerk (as my county and state websites dont offer forms on their sites) and also provided help understanding the uses of the specific deed I needed to use.

The TODD form has been notarized and registered with my county Register of Deeds office, so it works just fine.

My only quibble is that when I printed it out, it missed part of the last line of the notary's info and the fine print in the bottom corners. When I printed it at 90% scale, it included those things.

You should add a button to cancel a package. I uploaded a document for e-recording, but wanted to cancel because I got a more clear copy.

The forms were exactly the ones required by that New Jersey county, and were very easy to fill out.
I would use this site again, and highly recommend it.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

We are delighted to have been of service. Thank you for the positive review!

This was a seamless process. It probably took one minute to fill out my information and upload the document. It was formatted and sent immediately. It was processed the next day at the county recorders office. I have zero complaints.

Before finding this company I spent an entire day calling and leaving messages at other e-filing companies like simplfile and others but they all required subscriptions. I just needed to file a single document now and then so that was not a good fit. (And those companies I found out still require the customer to do all the work!). Deeds.com kept me informed throughout the process every step.

I'm happy to write this review.

Thank you

Submitting documents electronically through Deeds.com saved me time and provided the best possible service for me in the comfort of my own home. There's no faster, better way to record documents than e-recording with Deeds.com.
