West Virginia Correction Deed

Use the correction deed to amend a previously recorded warranty, special warranty, or quitclaim deed.

A correction deed explains and corrects an error in a prior instrument. As such, it passes no title, but confirms the conveyance effected by the previously recorded document. It must be executed from the original grantor to the original grantee, and it must be recorded in order to be legally valid.

The correction deed should reference the prior conveyance by type of error, date of execution, date of recording, as well as by recording number and location. Beyond that, it restates the information given in the prior deed, thus serving as its confirmation. The original instrument remains on record as well.

Deeds of correction are most appropriate for minor errors and omissions in the original deed, such as misspelled names, omission of marital status, or typos in the legal description. If an error has the potential to cloud the title and affect its future transfer, recording a correction deed will help.

More substantial changes, such as adding a name to the title or adding/subtracting a portion of land to the legal description of the property, usually require a new deed of conveyance instead of a correction deed. When in doubt, seek legal counsel to determine which instrument is most appropriate for a case that involves a material change.

Sherilynne P. said: I am delighted with the form. I just had to go through so much time and expense in order to use it. First, from your site I downloaded Adobe Acrobat. It totally compromised my computer. I had to get a computer expert to walk me through deleting adobe, and put a substitute on in order to use the form. That was an expense of $60.00. Then after that I still had a hard time getting the program to work, as the substitute program would not accept my e-mail address and I finally had to get someone on line to help me access that. I found it was a $$30.00 charge for the substitute. After fighting these lovely roadblocks, I was finally able to fill in the only form I needed and print it off. Took me two days to accomplish that. Why on earth do you offer adobe when it can compromise a computer so badly? Dealing with my husbands death and then having to deal with this, just one of many deterrents, well let's put it this way, it did not make my two days.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear of your experience. Our documents are Adobe PDFs because PDF is the standard for digital documents, most computers have Adobe Reader installed, and it (Adobe Reader) is free.
