Oregon Correction Deed

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.

Marissa G. said: The NV Clark County deed upon death was perfect! Our county doesn't offer a template, but rather has a long list of rules and specifications where they expect you to make your own document. I didnt want to risk making an unacceptable form so I purchased the template from Deeds.com. It was easy to use and very thorough. Our deed upon death was notarized and filed with the county with no issue. Save yourselves the time and headache and get the template!
