Real property in North Dakota consists of land, that which is affixed to land, that which is incidental or appurtenant to land, and that which is immovable by law (47-01-03). Title to real property can be transferred with an instrument in writing, such as a grant deed, which is sufficient to transfer title in this state. The use of the word "grant" in a real estate conveyance in North Dakota will imply the following covenants, and none other, from the grantor to the grantee: (1) Previous to the execution of the conveyance, the grantor has not conveyed the same estate, or any right, title or interest therein to any person other than the grantee, and (2) that such estate is, at the time of execution of the conveyance, free from any encumbrances done, made, or suffered by the grantor, or any person claiming under the grantor (47-10-19). The statutory form for a conveyance of real estate is in section 47-10-06 of the North Dakota Century Code.

In order to be considered for recordation by a county clerk or recorder in North Dakota, a grant deed must contain the grantor's original signature and a proper acknowledgment (47-19-03). If the deed is not acknowledged as required, it must be proved by a subscribing witness before it can be recorded (47-10-05). A grant deed in North Dakota can be acknowledged before a judge or clerk of the Supreme Court or a notary public (47-19-13). A city mayor, a recorder, or a county auditor can also take acknowledgments, but only within their own district (47-19-14). A deed acknowledged out-of-state will be accepted for recording in North Dakota if it has been acknowledged according to the laws of such state (47-19-35). The officer taking proof or acknowledgment of a deed must endorse or attach a certificate to the deed, and such certification must be in substantially the same form provided in section 47-19-27 of the North Dakota Century Code. Some grant deeds will need to have an auditor's certificate of transfer and a completed Statement of Full Consideration in order to be recorded (11-18-02 and 11-18-02.2).

A grant deed that has been duly signed, acknowledged or proved, and recorded in the county where the property is located will be deemed to provide constructive notice of the contents of the instrument, as it appears of record, to all persons (47-19-19). An unrecorded grant deed will be valid between the parties to the instrument and those who have notice thereof (47-19-46). An unrecorded grant deed will also be void against any subsequent purchaser in good faith, and for a valuable consideration, of the same real estate or portion thereof, whose conveyance is first deposited with the recorder and subsequently recorded, whether or not it is entitled to be recorded, or as against any attachment levied thereon or any judgment lawfully obtained at the suit of any party, against the person in whose name the title to such land appears of record, prior to the recording of such conveyance (47-19-41).

Form and instructions were useful. But I suggest creating a form for transferring a deed pursuant to a trust. The existing form is based on a will going through probate so it doesn't fit the trust situation in some respects.

I would absolutely use this service again. It was very convenient and I was pleasantly surprised at how responsive the staff was letting me know updates to my recording package. Also, my documents recorded immediately. I did have trouble uploading my document in the beginning because I didn't realize it had to be a pdf file. Once I figured that out, it was immediately accepted. Great service!

I didn't care for it because I was having to do other things in between filling it out and all of a sudden it would not allow me back in it to make changes. Luckily I had saved it and then had to do FILL/SIGN option which looks ugly but that was the only way I could add what I needed.

Highly Pleased- Strongly Recommend Deeds.com Long review... sorry:-) Originally I was very skeptical due to the enormous amount of the scams going on now days and the number of online sources that "claim" to provide you with deed forms for free or for a few. Nothing that you need and want done is free. There is always a cost. So luckily I came across deeds.com. This was the only site that appeared to be simple, to the point, and made no crazy promises. So before selecting this site, I did a little more checking around/price checking to ensure I am getting the best price for the product I needed. I even checked Staples and Amazon to find that they do indeed sell these forms but I do not think the products they provide are specific for my state and county. They claim their forms provided are for all states but my state is specific and I prefer to have forms provided by Deeds.com that is based on Indiana statute that Deed.com clearly identifies on each form. Deeds.com price of $20 seemed a little high at first but when I saw the products provided, the $20 cost is more than reasonable and fair. You not only get the deed form specific for my state and my specific "county" but also the other various/supplemental forms that may be required. Being familiar with my state and knowing how tedious and anal my state is on everything, I was pleasantly please to see the info and extra supplemental forms provided. For example, a person new to the State who recently had property deeded to them, would not necessarily know about the Homestead tax exemption provided if property is your primary residents, over 65 exemption etc. I would highly recommend this site for anyone needing these documents because Deeds.com has you covered on any and all forms/info you could ever need! A bonus is that there is one flat fee and not monthly cost that you have to worry about canceling later unless you superficially select a monthly package. I love the fact that Deeds.com is nothing fancy. There is not a bunch of elaborate graphics etc. They only provide what you need and what they provide is very accurate. Deeds.com has a customer for life.
