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.

This was such an easy transaction and quicker than if I went to the recording office. During this time of COVID19 and not being able to record documents in person it helped us to get what we needed and quickly.

Death of JT form was excellent. You have the best documents out there. I wish I could have read the sample just so I knew my information was entered correctly. Real problem is County wants a bar code on documents to get recorded. Now?
Need four deed forms so the expense starts to be prohibitive. I would rather pay more and get multiple access.

The forms were immediately available for download, which was nice. However, I was not impressed by the lack of several features: 1) there was no way to edit set text in the form, such as where it says you should consult an attorney. That is not necessary for recording the deed and I wanted to deleted it, but could not. 2) Also, under the "Notes" section, there is a limited area to write; I tried adding a fuller explanation of something, but the form would not accept or include it when I printed the final document. The form may do the job, but it's not very sophisticated or elegant.
