Hi, if the deed was transferred from family member to another more then 5 years ago, but never recorded, is it still legal or it has to be done again? (NY State)
Thanks

Hi am,

As far as I know, if the deed is not recorded, then it won't be considered as legal. You can contact the county recorder's office and try to notarize and record the unrecorded deed. If the county recorder's office objects to it, then you will have to file a new deed. You will have to ask the grantor to sign a new need in the name of the grantee and then record it.

Thanks

Thanks for your reply. As I understand there exists a time limit how long you can wait with recording. Do you know what this time limit is?
Thanks

As far as I know, the time limit to record the deed varies from one state to another. However, it is always better to record the deed as soon as possible.

Recording the deed does not affect its validity. I am not aware of any time limits to record. Send it to the recorder's office for recording. They will reject it if there is a problem.
