The Correcting Deed form is a document that allows a person to correct certain minor typographical mistakes in a Deed that were not discovered until after the deed was recorded. Depending on the type of Deed you are correcting, you can choose either of the following correcting deeds:
- Correcting Quitclaim Deed
- Correcting Grant Deed
The Grant Deed form is a document that allows a person to transfer real estate the person owns to another person.
GRANT DEED COMPARED WITH QUITCLAIM DEED
An important distinction between the Grant Deed form and the Quitclaim Deed form is the covenants or promises being made by the grantor (the party transferring the property). With the Grant Deed form, the following covenants are implied:
- That previous to the time of the execution of the grant deed, the grantor has not conveyed
the real estate to any person other than the grantee
- That the real estate is at the time of the execution of the grant deed free from encumbrances done, made, or suffered by the grantor, or any person claiming under the grantor.
Such covenants may be sued upon in the same manner as if they had been expressly inserted in the grant deed.
The Interspousal Transfer Deed form is a document that allows interests in real estate to be transferred between spouses. The Interspousal Transfer Deed form allows you to specify the appropriate exclusion so that the transfer does not trigger a reappraisal of the real estate for property tax purposes. Some common uses of the Interspousal Transfer Deed form include the following transfers:
- To a spouse's trust.
- To a trust for a surviving spouse of a deceased spouse.
- From a trust to the spouse of the settlor of the trust.
- From joint tenancy to community property
- From joint tenancy to tenancy in common
- From one spouse to both spouses
- From one spouse to the other spouse
- From both spouses to one spouse
- To relinquish any community interest and to vest said property in the name of the grantee as his/her sole and separate property
You can choose to prepare either an Interspousal Transfer Quitclaim Deed or an Interspousal Transfer Grant Deed.
The Quitclaim Deed form is a document that allows a person to transfer whatever rights the person has in a piece of real estate to another person. So, if a person owns real estate, a Quitclaim Deed transfers any interest the Grantor may have in the real estate to the Grantee. On the other hand, if a person does not have any rights to the real estate at all, the Quitclaim Deed transfers nothing.
An important distinction between the Quitclaim Deed form and the Grant Deed form is the covenants or promises being made by the grantor (the party transferring the property). With the Quitclaim Deed form, the grantor does not make any covenants or promises to the grantee (the person receiving the property) at all..

A deed is a document by which ownership of real estate property is transferred. This document contains the names of the previous and new owners of the real estate property for which the deed is being prepared, a legal description of the real estate property.
The deed then gets signed by the person transferring the real estate property in the presence of a Notary Public at which time it gets notarized. The deed then should be "recorded" (filed) in the County Recorder's Office in the county where the real estate property is located.
