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.

Process is well laid out, clear and concise. Check out is easy.
Recommendations:

* Assign names to the downloadable files that are meaningful, such as: WARRANTY DEED instead of the useless and cryptic 1420490866F11417.pdf.

* Provide a ONE BUTTON DOWNLOAD for all forms ordered. It's aggravating to have to click on each of the 20 documents and download them individually.

I would not have ordered this form had I realised how limited the fields are for details. There is no room for elaboration of terms. The language only allows one grantor and one grantee, and the gender and quantity default construction is a poor choice. Be basic, but leave room for more.
