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 am an attorney who was trying to draft some deeds in arizona. The deed templates coupled with the document instructions saved me hours work. At 1st I was skeptical, so spent hours figuring out how to draft the documents, but could have saved so much time If I had just spend the $20 sooner. Would use again is needed a deed format as a basis for my drafting.

Review: I believe you need more instruction on the use of the web site. I would type and nothing would appear on the form. When I tried to save a completed form I ended with a blank form with no detail.

Review: This is a very useful site for downloading legal forms - just be sure you're getting the form you need before buying. Unfortunately I selected the wrong form initially and had to buy a 2nd form to correct my error. I saw no way of communicating my error at that point - i.e., loss of one star.

Review: Really solid system for determining what may prevent your documents from being accepted. I love the comments section allowing for fluid communication. I only wish there were automated emails for all those communications and once documents were accepted, but I did receive a couple personally-generated emails regarding the progress instructing me to check the site.

Review: Since the recorder's office is closed, due to Covid, this worked well to submit my Quit Claim Deed. I was a bit confused with the direction and download. But, I think I got her done! We'll see if I get recorded and confirmation is received. I may be back
