Minnesota Correction Deed

Use the corrective deed to amend a previously recorded deed of conveyance with an error that could affect the title.

In Minnesota, there are two options for correcting a deed, re-recording the corrected original deed and recording a newly drafted corrective deed. When re-recording the original deed, make corrections directly on the document, but keep in mind that legal documents cannot be altered with strikeout, whiteout, line through or correction tape. Check with the county's recording office before choosing this option to verify local requirements regarding title pages, required attachments and how to handle the correcting itself.

A re-recorded document must be re-signed by the original parties and re-acknowledged and contain a correction statement that gives the reason for the re-recording and refers to the prior recording. Keep in mind that adding extra pages for the various required statements and the signatures will increase the overall page count of the re-recording, which may affect recording fees.

The easiest and cleanest option is to record a new corrective deed, which mostly restates the prior deed, but also contains the reason for the correction, reference to the prior deed by date, recording number and title, as well as the actual corrected information. By restating all the information from the earlier deed, the new deed corrects and confirms the previously recorded deed, which remains on record.

Take advantage of the statutorily defined right to have a corrective instrument inspected by the county attorney, who, "on finding that such deed is given for the purpose of correcting a defect in the title, or on account of a technical error in a prior conveyance," will certify those findings so that the deed can be recorded even if "there are unpaid taxes or assessments upon such land." (Minn. Stat. 272.15) As far as deed tax is concerned, corrective deeds in Minnesota are generally subject to minimum deed tax. Contact the county recorder or review the county website to ensure that the correct amount is included and sent to the required location.

Patricia D. said: It worked great- I had a little trouble at first with the site, figuring out where to do what, but the form was much better than the one we purchased at Staples, loved being able to fill out with the computer. We did need the other form as per the screen prior to ordering but couldn't figure out which one. The ladies at the recorders were great too.

Michael M. said: Easy to follow directions and instructions to properly and legally fill-in the Deed that I requested. It was also very easy and convenient. If I was going to employ an Attorney or Legal Documents Preparer, they would easily charge me between $150 to $225 a Deed! For the cost of $19.97, anyone would pursue this price! Thank you, Deeds.com for a wonderful and terrific experience! I'm going to need you again to change Titles for my other Investment Properties.
