Use the corrective deed to correct an error in a previously recorded warranty, special warranty, or quitclaim deed in New Jersey.

Once a deed has been recorded, it cannot be changed and remains part of the public record. It is possible, however, to amend that record by adding a newly executed deed. The method used depends upon the reasons for changing. For corrections or omissions in the existing deed, file a corrective deed, or re-record the original deed after making the changes on it. In order to include/omit a name from the existing deed, however, a new standard conveyance, such as a warranty or quitclaim deed from the current owner (instead of the original grantor), may be more appropriate.

The errors usually adjusted by a corrective deed are minor omissions or typographical mistakes, sometimes called scrivener's errors. Among those are misspelled names, omitted or wrong middle initial, a minor error in the property description, or an omitted execution date. The corrective deed, also called deed of correction or deed of confirmation, must state that its sole purpose is to correct a specific error, which is usually identified by type. For example: an error in the grantor's name, or an error in the grantor's marital status. The latter might also require an additional signature by the grantor's spouse in the acknowledgement section of the deed.

In some counties, it is common practice to re-record the prior deed and to make the correction, error identification and reference to the earlier recording on the face of it. The entire deed, including new signature and acknowledgement page(s), must be re-recorded for new fees. As with the prior deed, the corrective deed (or re-recorded deed) must be accompanied by two copies of the affidavit of consideration (RTF-1 form), identifying and explaining the exemption under #4. In addition, submit the GIT/REP-4a form, which is a tax waiver form for corrected deeds without consideration. Download both forms from the website of New Jersey's Department of the Treasury.

Was insecure about being able to access the information but pleasantly found that the site was easy to use. Seems that I can use it repeatedly to go back and reprint the forms once I paid.

I had a excellent experience using DEEDS.COM. Very clear directions and site was easy to use. I paid the fee to have my deed electronically filed and it was done the day I requested it be filed.

Not user friendly, and not an Adobe fan. The first page of Quitclaim Deed form cuts off the Parcel Identification line on the bottom. Also quite a few forms showed up to be downloaded , after I paid, so I was unsure if all the forms were part of the quitclaim package. I have adobe but was unable to locate the forms in adobe on my computer after I downloaded them. Just wanted to print out one quitclaim deed form, which would have taken less that 3 minutes. instead it took 97 minutes. Thank you, though, for having the form there.
