Selling a Home with a Faulty Deed

One of the more unfortunate circumstances that can occur during a real estate sale is when a title company discovers that you have a faulty deed to your home during the closing process.  Up to this point in the transaction, you and a buyer have agreed on the selling price and the terms of the sale along with a closing date.  So, what do we mean by a “faulty deed” and why does this pose a problem?

A deed is typically referred to as a “Warranty Deed” which establishes legal ownership of the property.  All deeds are customarily recorded in the records of the county where the property is located so that anyone can determine who the legal owner is whenever they are researching that particular parcel.  On some occasions, a deed will get drafted improperly.  This could result from:

  • A deed being signed by the wrong individuals
  • A deed with an incorrect legal description
  • A deed with typographical errors
  • A deed with the wrong date on the transaction

In many instances, the problems with a deed go undiscovered until the sale is pending.  Attorneys and legal assistants will examine a property deed thoroughly to ensure that there aren’t any mistakes or outstanding issues in the ownership history of the property.  Because county recorders are not responsible for checking on the accuracy of a deed before it gets filed, you cannot rely on a copy of the deed, even if it’s been file-stamped.
