A grant deed can be used to convey real property in Mississippi. In a conveyance of real estate in this state, the use of the words "grant, bargain, and sell" will operate as an express covenant to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns, that the grantee was seized of an indefeasible estate, free from encumbrances made or suffered by the grantor, except the rents and services that may be reserved, and also for quiet enjoyment against the grantor, his heirs, and assigns, unless limited by specific words contained in the deed ( 89-1-41).

A grant deed in Mississippi is required to be declared in writing, signed by the grantor, and delivered ( 89-1-3). Grant deeds should be acknowledged or proved in order to entitle them to be recorded, and such acknowledgment or proof should be certified by an officer authorized to take acknowledgments. Any of the officers listed in section 89-3-3 of the Mississippi Revised Code are authorized to acknowledge or prove deeds. If the party executing a grant deed or other conveyance does not reside in Mississippi, the deed can be acknowledged or proved by any of the officers listed in 89-3-9, and the instrument will be as good and effectual as if the certificate of acknowledgment or proof had been made by an authorized officer in Mississippi ( 89-3-9). Grant deeds lacking a proper acknowledgment or proof may be refused for record by the clerk. However, if an instrument is not acknowledged or proved according to law but is otherwise admitted to record, then all persons are considered to be on constructive notice of the instrument ( 89-3-1).

The recording of a grant deed in Mississippi is essential in order to provide notice to third parties. Except as may be provided by Mississippi laws, a grant deed or other conveyance is invalid as against a purchaser for valuable consideration without notice, or any creditor, unless the deed has been recorded with the clerk of the chancery court in the county where the real property is located. After the deed has been filed with the clerk, the priority of the filing time will determine the priority of all conveyances of the same land as between the several holders of such conveyances ( 89-5-1). If a grant deed is not filed for record with the clerk, the failure to do so will prevent any claim of priority by the holder of such instrument over any similar recorded instrument affecting the same property, to the end that with reference to all instruments which may be filed for record, the priority thereof is governed by the priority of the filing time of the several instruments, in the absence of actual notice. A grant deed will take effect, as to all creditors and subsequent purchasers for a valuable consideration without notice only from the time it is delivered to the clerk to be recorded ( 89-5-5). An unrecorded grant deed will be valid and binding only between the parties and their heirs, and as to all subsequent purchasers with notice or without valuable consideration ( 89-5-3).

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect.

The documents themselves are fine and the information provided with them is helpful. I find the actual processing of the documents, however, to be difficult particularly once the document has been saved. First, I note that the box for the date only allows entry of the last 2 digits of the year. Unfortunately, my download only allows me to enter one of the 2 digits required. When I delete it repeatedly, it eventually allows both digits to be entered but puts them in extremely small text and in superscrypt. I have not found a solution to this problem and am not sure the deed can even be recorded with this problem.

Another problem is that if you try to revise the document after you have saved it the curser goes to the end of the line after each key entry. This means that there basically is no way to efficiently save the document for reworking later since you will have to delete everything you have entered in the text box unless you only need to make a single keystroke change or are willing to replace the curser after each entry. Try that with a long property description!

Please note that I am using a Mac to prepare my documents and perhaps this is part of an "incompatibility problem". However, I didn't see a disclaimer regarding Mac use and so would expect the documents to perform correctly. Overall, I give the program a "2 star" rating because I am experiencing significant difficulties in entering dates in the documents even before saving them and because saving your work for later revision appears to be basically unworkable.
