We have been waiting for a Title Company to put a release of Lien together for the past 3 months. I figured it was taking way to long and decided to use template here instead. In less than hour I was able to add all the information on the template and provide forms to our Seller to use. We were buying and he didnt think they were necessary. But I refused to pay him in full until he agreed to sign papers at the bank, and of course in front of a notary. We turned around and filed the Release of lien paperwork at County Clerks office, we officially own our house. Thank you!

Very pleased. I spent a fair amount of time chasing a blank form only to be told it couldn't be given to me - I had to go through my attorney.
Going thru the deeds.com was a breeze; the blank form looked exactly like one I had filed before :-)
