Great service! I downloaded the Quit Claim Deed package and I'm so grateful I did. It contained detailed directions on how to fill out all the forms, an example of a finalized copy, and excellent customer service. Also, if you choose to use their digital service, they will digitally submit the documents into the County Recorder's Office for you. Going through DEEDS.COM for the service I chose saved me over $300. Recording my new deed was a breeze. Thank you again DEEDS.com!

This is my first time using this amazing service. I wish I was told about this before I went all the way downtown, drove thru construction zones, paid for parking only to be told the computer system had crashed. rnI was referred to Deeds.com and I will not use the downtown system again.
