Yes, you can save your deed form at any point with your information in it. The forms can also be emailed, blank or complete, as attachments.

Are there any recurring fees involved?

No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

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.

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. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

The basic setup was fine but, I need to review the document in its entirety for accuracy which I have yet to do so. So far so good. The monthly fee is more than I need for right now.

Deeds.com supplied exactly what I needed to complete a quitclaim. Deeds.com saved me $180, supplied the necessary forms, and a sample page to use as a guide. I recommend Deeds.com.

Really fast turn around time, and was provided exactly what I was looking for this time. This is my first experience with this site. It would have been cool to also get a document depicting/describing a property line, but like I said before, exactly what I was looking for this time.

Thank you so much for your feedback Altaray, we really appreciate it.

I used this form and guide a couple years ago and found it helpful and easy to fill out. Had good results at the Recorder's Office. Would recommend Deeds.com.

The docs were precise and accurate for my specific needs. I greatly appreciated the accompanying forms and instructional guidance to help make the use of the forms direct and easy to complete. Equally important, I was not suckered in to get a great price for the docs I needed only to be led to expensive subscriptions or additional fees. Very impressive and professional site.

Look great and I thought my daughter wanted me to buy, but she had already bought the package so didn't need it.

Reply from Staff

Therefore, we have taken immediate action and canceled your order as well as processed the refund for your payment. Have a wonderful day.

Your service was fine but as a newly widowed senior, I wish your price was lower.
