Use the corrective deed to correct an error in a previously recorded deed of conveyance, such as a warranty or quitclaim deed, in Vermont.

Correcting an error in a recorded deed helps prevent problems that might arise when the current owner tries to sell the property. The best method for correction is to prepare and record a new document, often called a corrective or correction deed. This document does not convey title; instead, it confirms the prior conveyance of the property.

Apart from supplying the correct information, the new deed must give the reason for the correction by identifying the error. It also must reference the prior deed by title, date, and recording number. The original grantor has to sign again, which confirms the property transfer to the grantee. Generally, corrective deeds are used to address minor errors in a deed, such as typos, accidentally omitted suffixes or middle initials of names, and other minor omissions. When correcting the legal description, both grantor and grantee should sign the corrective instrument to avoid doubt regarding any portions of the conveyed property.

For certain changes, however, a correction deed cannot be used. According to Vermont Title Standard 4.1, a grantor, "who has conveyed by an effective and unambiguous deed," cannot use a corrective deed in order to "make a substantial change in the name of the grantee, decrease the size of the premises or the extent of the estate granted, impose a condition or limitation on the interest granted, or otherwise diminish the grant of the prior deed." Material changes of that nature require that the grantee convey back to the grantor before a correction can be applied. When in doubt about the gravity of an error and whether a corrective deed is the appropriate vehicle to address it, consult with a lawyer.

Was working with a notary client that need to do a deed. We got on this site, ordered the blank forms, he filled them out and we printed them so he could sign. Really clean forms, easy to understand and complete in a hurry. I will be letting all my clients know about this site.

That's terrific Camesha, glad to hear. Have a great day!

I appreciate having forms available and not having to go to a business supply or attorney. This is great. However, there are two individual quit claim deed forms and I don't know which one is appropriate.

mostly good; however, you need to update the annual exclusion gift amount from $14,000 to $15,000 (where it has ben for several years), and you need to make your Gift Deed final paragraph be gender neutral like "they" or "he or she" rather than just"he". We women lawyers and our women clients appreciate that.

I was very impressed. I needed a Grant Deed that would comply with Calif. law. I haven't tried to record it yet, but I think it's spot-on. References to statutes very helpful. I'm a retired Idaho attorney, and my first attempt was politely rejected by the recorder. (documentary transfer fee exemption, etc.)
