VIVA ESCROW Q & A SEGMENT
(Real questions sent to us – verbatim!)
Recently, my cousin found a notarized document, a completed quitclaim deed that she signed 3 years ago and forgot to have it recorded. The notary stamp shows the date of the notary person has expired. Is this document still valid to be recorded?
As long as the date of the notary commission date had not expired when the notary did the notarization, it will be fine to record.
For educational purposes, please note the following brief summary of the basics of a deed:
- It is good to record the deed at the County Recorder’s office as soon as possible because it makes the ownership change public.
- However, if the deed was properly drawn, signed and delivered to the Grantee (person receiving the deed) that process is already a signal of intent and the Grantee can claim the change occurred when they received it. The document does not actually have to be recorded.
- The notary of the signature is only required for the purpose of recording of the deed at County Recorder’s.
