Indiana Correction Deed

Use this form to correct an error in a fee simple, quitclaim, or joint deed of conveyance in Indiana, thus eliminating potential title flaws.

In Indiana, a previously recorded deed can be corrected by recording a second deed, called a correction or corrective deed. The sole purpose of such a document is to prevent potential title flaws, which may create problems when the current owner attempts to sell the property to a third party. The correction deed does not convey title but confirms the prior conveyance. For the most part it reiterates the prior deed verbatim, except for the corrected item.

The errors usually adjusted by a corrective deed are minor omissions or typographical mistakes, sometimes called scrivener's errors. Among those are misspelled names, omitted or wrong middle initial, a minor error in the property description, or an omitted execution date.

The corrective deed must state that its sole purpose is to correct a specific error, identified by type. For example: an error in the grantor's name, or an error in the grantor's marital status. The latter might also require an additional signature by the grantor's spouse in the acknowledgement section of the deed. The Indiana sales disclosure form is not required with a deed that does not transfer title, such as a correction deed.
