Use the correction deed to correct an error in a previously recorded quitclaim, warranty or grant deed in Louisiana.

In Louisiana, a previously recorded deed can be corrected by recording a second deed for the sole purpose of correcting the error and preventing potential title flaws, which may create problems when the current owner attempts to sell the property. 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 correction.

Louisiana statutes also allow for an affidavit or act of correction, which must be executed by the notary or preparer of the original act or deed, or by a notary familiar with the records and the reason for the necessary correction. Such an act of correction is effective retroactively "to the date of recordation of the original act," but does not "prejudice the rights acquired by any third person before the act of correction is recorded" (LARS 35.2.1). It is usually reserved for clerical errors, such as minor omissions or typographical mistakes, sometimes called scrivener's errors.

When in doubt about the gravity of the error and its effects, it may be safer to record a correction deed since that involves execution by the affected parties and acknowledgment by a notary in the presence of two witnesses. The correction deed must be executed from the original grantor to the original grantee and state that its purpose is to correct a specific error, identified by type. It references the prior deed by date(s) and by book and page number, as well as place of recording.

Certain types of changes, however, might not be achieved by the use of a correction deed. Adding or omitting a grantee, for example, or changing the manner in which title is held, or making material changes to the legal description, especially deleting a portion of the originally transferred property, may all require a new deed of conveyance instead of a correction of the original deed.

My mind is blown! For some reason, our veteran title companies wouldn't record our deed but luckily, the assessor's page recommended Deeds and other sites to e-record. It was so simple and so convenient!

Bottom line - it was certainly worth the $21 (+-?) I paid for the form and instructions, etc.
Admittedly the form is a little inflexible in terms of editing for readability but I understand that offering greater flexibility would likely make theft more likely. So I'm happy with what I got. One suggestion - add more info about what's required in the "Source of Title" section.
