New York Correction Deed

New York Correction Deed Information

Correction deeds are sometimes called confirmatory instruments. As such, they confirm and perfect an existing title created earlier and remove any defects from it, but they do not pass title on their own. They make explicit reference to the instrument that is being corrected by indicating its execution and recording date, the place of recording and the number under which the document is filed. They also need to identify the error or errors by type before supplying the correction in the subsequent body of the deed.

A new real property transfer report, RP-5217-pdf (or RP-5217NYC), with original signatures must accompany all deeds in New York, including correction deeds; the same goes for the tax affidavit TP-584, which both seller and buyer must sign. Forms are available at the county recording office or can be ordered online (but not downloaded). As a correction, the transaction may be exempt from transfer tax. Be sure to include proof that the transfer tax was paid, either by including the original cover page of the prior deed, or by providing an affidavit stating that transfer tax was paid with the prior document.

Furthermore, counties often require a cover page, which may be specific to the county or city and provided on their websites. It serves to identify the document more easily and may be called "recording and endorsement (cover) page." New recording fees per page must be paid for a correction instrument.

Robyn R. said: Deeds.com was so simple and easy to use! My local recorders office is closed due to COVID-19 and their recording said to use Deeds.com. I thought it was going to either be very complicated or very expensive and it was neither!!! The site walked me through step by step and the price of their service was very fair and affordable. They were very timely and efficient and my documents were recorded almost immediately! Thank you Deeds.com!!!

Reply from Staff: Thank you Robyn, glad we could help.


Cherene K. said: The process was easy and reasonable. My only problem was that, when I filled out my form on the computer, the writing I did overlapped with the pre-written words on the form, so that I had to end up doing it by hand. I've used DEEDS before and have not had that problem.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Cherene. We've emailed you for some followup regarding the issue you reported.


James P. said: I wish I used this site more often. The format is pretty easy but the messages were invaluable and the staff were great. I was able to complete my transaction in a Covid environment from the security of my own home. Great service and tools!

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. We really appreciate it. Have a great day!
