Some of the forms I ordered didn't have enough space for all of the information, but were useful as a guide for creating what I needed. Now I'll be trying the e-recording to see how that goes.

Five stars rating for sure. All so easy to download and print from your home computer. I live in rural Arizona and have no store to run in to like the lady at the County office told me, so Deeds.com is the best.

Navigating the site was fine, but the service was not able to find my deed. Still have not received my refund.

Reply from Staff

Thanks for your feedback Kenneth. Sorry we were not able to pull the deed for your property. We voided your payment on December 28, 2018. Sometimes, depending on your financial institution, it can take a few days for the pending charge (hold) to expire.

First time user and was directed there from a search on my home state for a state form.
The downloaded form was complete with instructions and sample filled out form.
I was not happy about the cost for the form, but it did the job.

Terrific service, I found just what I needed, and priced reasonably. The decision to purchase a form instead of trying to create one of my own was easy to make. I will return to this service again.

The basic setup was fine but, I need to review the document in its entirety for accuracy which I have yet to do so. So far so good. The monthly fee is more than I need for right now.
