I needed to add my partner to my warranty deed and deeds.com made it easy to understand what form I needed, attached a great explanation of the form and a sample of the form filled out. Couldn\'t be happier. In fact I\'m researching a Revocable Transfer on Death Deed now and they\'ve given me the confidence to rewrite my own will on my own.

Service seems smooth. I just wonder what the turn around time on recording is (I need proof of recordation).

I would give Deeds.com 10 stars if I could!! The staff were super friendly and easy to work with. They kept me constantly updated during the process of uploading and forwarding my deeds for recording. And, the price was extremely reasonable. I look forward to utilizing Deeds.com every time I need to record a deed no matter what U.S. State. I wholeheartedly recommend them!

Quick turnaround and superior customer service from my reviewer. Above and beyond my expectations and took the time to look into the lengthy list of other counties I have to confirm you are able to e-record for me. I appreciate all the time and effort taken to help me.

First time using Deeds.com and feel that your platform is clear and easy to use. I was also pleased with the messaging center and follow-up and also surprised at how quickly our particular deed was recorded and available to view. Having said that, when I first investigated Deeds.com the fee was $15 and as of 1/1/21 it has increased to $19 which I feel is pretty steep for the handling of 1 simple document especially when the turnaround was basically the same day. Your fee was nearly the equivalent of the cost of the Clerk's recording fee. Perhaps you should offer a fee schedule for those of us who are not volume recorders. Just a thought.

I thought it was easy, but I wish it were faster. I uploaded my document Monday night (after 5pm) and got my invoice the next morning Tuesday paid it right away. and my document was not sent to me as recorded until Wednesday morning even though it was recorded the day earlier at 8:30am. So there was a delay of almost 24 hours letting me know that my document was recorded. So if they could speed that up so that we knew exactly when it got recorded immediately I would give it a million stars
