Bought a transfer on death deed form and it worked great. Easy to fill out and record with the County. Got some helpful information from the county recorders office before filling out the form. I found out that I could use one deed for 2 properties. Saved me money not having to pay fees for 2 deeds.

Worked well for me to create a deed for a house I inherited. It was very thorough and easy to use. I have no experience with the law so I just googled terms I didn't understand and was fine. I also called land records a lot and ended up not needing a lot of the material included, but it was still good to have it.

Ordered the quitclaim forms. Amazing value! Received everything I needed and then some. The forms were easy to use and understand with the help of the guide. The best part was that once completed I used deeds.com's e-recording service to submit the document for recording (our county offices are still closed). Outstanding!

I needed to file an affidavit of succession. I downloaded the forms and filled in the blanks. The instructions and example sheet were very helpful.
I got the paper recorded with the county today and all went smoothly.
Good product.
