Kansas Correction Deed

In Kansas, the correction deed is the most widely accepted instrument used to correct an error in a recorded deed.

Many counties require, or at least prefer, the filing of a correction deed when making any corrections to the original instrument. It can be used to correct a typographical or other minor error, for example in the names of the grantor or grantee, their marital status or type of vesting, or in the legal description or any other information about the property. Although some counties accept a re-file affidavit when correcting and re-recording a deed, executing a correction or corrective deed is the more common method and guarantees that the state's legibility requirements are met (KSA 28-115(e)). The correction deed must make reference to the earlier deed that has already been recorded by date and instrument number and needs to indicate its exemption status from resubmitting the Kansas Sales Validation Questionnaire (KSA 79-1437(e)). As is required with any deed submitted for recording in Kansas, a new address for tax statements must be furnished with the new deed (KSA 58-2221).

To make more significant changes, such as changing the way title is held (e.g. as joint tenant or tenant-in-common) or such as adding another owner to the property, it is best to record an entirely new deed instead of filing a correction deed. In order to release one name from a deed held in joint tenancy or tenancy in common, for example in case of separation or divorce, use a quitclaim deed.

Maria S. said: The paperwork/forms are fine, but there isn't enough explanation for me to figure out how to file the extra forms (which I do need in my case). The main form, Deed Upon Death is fine. I think the price is pretty high for these forms. I wouldn't have purchased it because there are places to get them for much cheaper (about 6 dollars), but this site had the extra forms I wanted (property in a trust and another form). Unfortunately these were included as a "courtesy" and there are no instructions for them. So three stars for being clear about what was in the package, having the right forms that I need, but instructions for putting them to use and price took a couple of stars off. Downloading was easy and once you download you can type the info into the PDF--that makes working with the forms much easier.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the feedback Maria. Regarding the supplement documents, it is best to get assistance from the agency that requires them. These are not legal documents, they should provide full support and guidance for them.


Eric D. said: 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.

Reply from Staff: Thank you Eric. Have a great day!
