Use the corrective deed to correct an error in a previously recorded deed of conveyance in Maine.

Correcting an error in a recorded deed helps prevent problems that might arise when the current owner attempts to sell the property. The best method for correction is prepare and record a new document, a so-called corrective deed. This document does not convey title; instead, it confirms the prior conveyance of the property.

Apart from supplying the correct information, the new deed must state the reason for correcting and reference the prior deed by title, date, and recording number. It must be signed by the original grantor, confirming the earlier conveyance to the original grantee. When correcting the legal description, both the grantor and the grantee should sign the corrective deed to avoid any doubt regarding the conveyed property.

For certain types of changes, however, a correction deed may not be appropriate. Adding or removing 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 corrective deed. When in doubt about how to correct an error, consult with a lawyer.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

Pleased with the results, except for the "notice of confidentiality rights" above the QUIT CLAIM DEED headline. Is it needed to be included on the form or can it be removed ? How can it be removed, I do not see a reason for it to be on the print out copy. Thank you.

The Affidavit- Death of Joint Tenant form you provided is not the same form as showed on the Los Angeles County property tax website.
It appears that the LA county form requires entering additional info that is not included in your form.

I used deeds.com to record a deed because the recording office closed due to Covid 19.
It was easy to sign up and upload the documents I needed recorded and within 24 hours possibly even less, the deeds were recorded. I am very happy with the service and the $15 fee was affordable and worth every penny to get it done so quickly.
