Deed Preparation

  1. Changing the Name on a Deed

    One of the questions this office is most frequently asked is how to remove the name of a deceased person from the deed to property or how to otherwise "clear up" the deed, so that the property can be conveyed.

  2. Document Rejections

    By ensuring that your documents do not violate the following requirements you can significantly reduce the chances that your document will be rejected for recording.

  3. Instruments of Conveyance

    Legal instruments such as Warranty Deeds or Quit Claim Deeds convey title from 1 property owner to another and are usually drafted by attorneys, title companies or paralegals or legal secretaries under the supervision of an attorney.

  4. Redacting Personal Information

    The Jackson County Recorder of Deeds strongly recommends that non-essential personal information be excluded from any document presented for recording with this office.
