What is the Virginia Corrective Affidavit?

A corrective affidavit under Va. Code Section 55.1-609 is a statutory form for correcting an obvious description error in a recorded deed, deed of trust, or mortgage. Note that the affidavit must be executed by an attorney licensed by the Virginia State Bar.

The statutes classify an "obvious description error" as an error transcribing courses and distances; an error incorporating a recorded plat or deed reference; an error in lot number or designation; or an omitted exhibit supplying the legal description of the subject parcel.

The contents of a statutory corrective affidavit include the original grantor's and grantee's names and the place where the original deed was recorded. It includes both the property description containing the error and the corrected property description. The affidavit is signed by a Virginia attorney and notarized.

Prior to recording the affidavit, the attorney delivers a copy to all parties to the deed, deed of trust, or mortgage containing the error and to the title insurance company, if applicable, and gives notice of intent to record the affidavit. If no objection is received within 30 days of receipt of notice, the attorney may record the affidavit. The affidavit should include a copy of the notice sent to the parties and a statement that no objection was received.

In addition to meeting the requirements set forth at 55.1-609, the affidavit must comply with recording standards for documents in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Record the affidavit in the Circuit Court Clerk's office of the county or independent city where the parcel described within the affidavit is situated.

This is a form for an attorney's use only. Contact a Virginia attorney if you think you need this form, or to address your specific situation.

Review: I was very pleased with the ease in use of the forms. I suggest making sure the sample copy is totally aligned with the exact same parts. I was a little confused about the portion "Subject to.." It was easy to make corrections, additions, etc because the page remained open, and I didn't have to re=open the forms continuously.

Name: Elaine S.

Review: Being new at this, the system was somewhat difficult to understand at first. It took a couple of tries before I got it. It seems to be somewhat slow as well. However, it's a wonderful idea to have documents recorded from the comfort of your home, especially in the times that we are in with COVID19. I definitely don't mind paying the fee which I thought was reasonable.
