A Paralegals Guide to Deed Drafting


Learn how to correctly draft deeds by understanding requirements and potential pitfalls to avoid.

Many paralegals are thrust into the situation of preparing a simple deed that will be relied upon by attorneys and clients and title examiners. What on first blush can appear to be a ministerial task of taking a prior deed and just changing the names and dates can be a Pandora's box waiting to happen. By understanding the premise behind deeds, the absolute requirements needed for their preparation, and the various iterations that are appropriate under certain circumstances, paralegals can prepare deeds with confidence.
Even more importantly, by understanding the variables and what can go wrong in deed preparation, a paralegal can troubleshoot and spot issues before they render a deed unenforceable.
The topic explains the different types of deeds, when one deed is a better fit for a particular transaction, and how to ask the right questions and get the right information to draft with confidence.
