Use the correction deed to correct errors in a warranty, special warranty, or quit claim deed in North Carolina.

In North Carolina, several correction options may be used: an affidavit of correction, also called scrivener's affidavit; a re-recording of the original erroneous deed; and a newly drafted correction deed. Choosing the best option will depend on the type of error in the deed. Minor or typographical errors can be addressed through the affidavit (N.C.G.S. 47-36.1), but material errors and any errors affecting the legal description require a correction deed, or at least a re-recordation of the corrected original deed.

The affidavit of correction goes on public record with cross-reference to the deed and constitutes notification of an error, but not an actual correction. When re-recording the original deed, make corrections directly on the document (or a certified copy of it). Initial these changes and have the document re-signed by the original parties and re-acknowledged. Check with the county's recording office before choosing this option to verify local requirements regarding title pages, contents and fees.

The easiest and cleanest option for correcting a deed is to record a new correction deed. This eliminates the need to determine the type of error and its potential impact on the ability to sell the property at a later point. The correction deed references the original document by date and recording number and, except for the corrected or omitted information, duplicates the text of the old deed. The original parties must sign in the presence of a notary, who then acknowledges this new instrument prior to recording.

At first glance, explanations and guidance to fill out the grant deed seems quite direct and no too difficult. I did not see any reference to a mortgagee which I believe needs to be incorporated in a boundary line adjustment (BLA), though not sure
I'll do the actual filling out the form in the next couple of weeks and will be in a better position for a more complete review.

While most of the material is available elsewhere, this puts it all together and can save a lot of time. It included some additional information on California SB2 exemptions that was a big help.

First, I am glad that you gave a blank copy, an example copy, and a 'guide'. It made it much easier to do. Overall I was very happy with your products and organization... however, things got pretty confusing and I have a pretty 'serious' law background in Real Estate and Civil law. With that said, I spent about 10+ hours getting my work done, using the Deed of Trust and Promissory note from you and there were a few problems: First, it would be FANTASTIC if you actually aligned your guide to actually match the Deed or Promissory Note. What I mean is that if the Deed says 'section (E)' then your guide shouldn't be 'randomly' numbered as 1,2,3, for advice/instructions, but should EXACTLY match 'section (E)'. Some places you have to 'hunt' for what you are looking for, and if you did it based on my suggestion, you wouldn't need to 'hunt' and it would avoid confusion. 2nd: This one really 'hurt'... you had something called the 'Deed of Trust Master Form' yet you had basically no information on what it was or how to use it. The only information you had was a small section at the top of the 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide'. Holy Cow, was that 'section' super confusing. I still don't know if I did it correctly, but your guide says only put a return address on it and leave the rest of the 16 or so page Deed of Trust beneath it blank... and then include your 'Deed of Trust' (I had to assume the short form deed that I had just created) as part of it. I had to assume that I had to print off the entire 17 page or so title page and blank deed. I also had to assume that the promissory note was supposed to be EXHIBIT A or B on the Short Form Deed. It would be great if someone would take a serious look at that short section in your 'Short Form Deed of Trust Guide' and realize that those of us using your products are seriously turning this into a county clerk to file and that most of us, probably already have a property that has an existing Deed... or at least can find one in the county records if necessary... and make sure that you make a distinction between the Deed for the property that already exists, versus the Deed of Trust and Promissory note that we are trying to file. Thanks.

It wasn't really what I needed I read and read and read and read and I thought I was to do with for filing for probate or probate executor but instead it was for the property if you are executor and but it wasn't very clear on that so it didn't work for me so I was kind of wasted money

Sorry to hear that Norman. We've gone ahead and canceled your order and payment.
