I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

The Deed of trust form was fine but the promissory note was less user friendly since I needed to change a few things that were fixed in the template. I ended up using white-out after I got no response when I emailed the help site that was provided in one of your emails, so it looks a little odd but should be usable

Outstanding forms and service. Liked that the main deed forms were PDF so I could fill them out on my laptop, in my own time, instead of some online Q/A auto populate system. Guide was helpful, as was the completed sample. Used the erecording service to file the deed, amazing.

Absolutely great. The staff is responsive and knowledgeable. The online interface is excellent. The total cost for finalizing the sale on our property (minus state filing fees) was $39. A wonderful experience.

The site delivered just what it promised - I needed a specific deed formatted for a specific county/state, and they delivered it at a great price. One note for improvement - it is not intuitively obvious that I could go back and re-download if necessary and this caused me stress, but a follow up email alleviated this. Great service!

Excellent - no reservations. I used them on a Sunday and had my info on Monday. Not only did they execute the order flawlessly, the fixed my screw up* immediately. *I hit refresh before the "secured" page transmitted, so I created (2) two orders of the same item.

Thanks for the review Paul, glad you were happy with the service and staff. Our staff is pretty good at catching the few duplicate orders that get through.
