Frequently Asked Questions

Where should the deed be signed?The deed should usually be notarized in the same state the property is located in. Most states recognize notarization of land transfers by officials from other states, but you should contact the County Clerk's Office where the land is located to be sure that they will allow transfers of property located within their borders to be notarized in another state.Do I need to adjust the document margins?The blank spaces required for recording stamps and notes vary between counties. Leaving insufficient space can result in delays and/or additional fees. It is recommended that you contact the recorder's office in the county in which the property is located, in order to find out the margin requirements for that office. This form will default to a 3 inch margin at the top of the first page, with a 1 inch margin everywhere else.
