Correcting Recorded Documents in Oregon with a Re-recording Certificate
If an instrument is recorded and later found to have missing, incomplete, or incorrect information, Oregon law requires that a statutory statement referencing the prior deed -- called a re-recording certificate -- appear either on the first page of the original document or on an attached cover sheet of a re-recorded instrument (ORS 205.244). The re-recording certificate must identify the person requesting the re-recording, the specific error corrected by the re-recording, and the location where the original deed was recorded (ORS 205.244(2)).
If the re-recording certificate appears on a newly generated cover sheet, the cover sheet must meet first-page requirements under ORS 205.234(2), which include the return address, name of transaction, grantor and grantee information, the true and actual consideration for the transfer, and, if applicable, the lien amount and satisfaction.
When re-recording a certified copy of a previously recorded instrument, no alterations may be made to correct the document (ORS 205.244(3)). Instead, make the necessary correction on an attachment and include it, along with the unaltered copy and the cover sheet, and identify these attachments on the cover sheet.
Oregon does not require reacknowledgement of the deed (ORS 205.244(2)). Contact the local county clerk's office with questions related to re-recording a specific document. Re-record the deed in the same office where the original deed was recorded.

Jina N. said: Awesome site!! You guys really make it simple to understand and access any Deeds that I need. I know you keep very up to date forms, as my county is hard core when it comes to the smallest of details, even compared to every other county across the state. Yet you made it simple and quick, and I never had to redo anything. Even the clerk was impressed that I had it filled out correctly the first time, as that usually never happened. Even the size of type/font and the margins were perfect. That saved a lot of time, money and most of all, frustration. I've recommended you to relatives, friends and co-workers. Thanks to the staff at deeds dot com !! I truly appreciate you. j

FRANK O. said: Easy to download and use the forms, however two forms needed for my county recording were not included.
Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback Frank. We'll look into finding and including the additional supplemental documents. Sometimes supplemental documents have to be generated by the county's system, specific to the transaction.
