altered quit claim deed

If when a [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]quit claim deed[/url] was notarized without a date on it, but then when it was filed it DID have a date on it plus the section where it says "prepared by" was also now filled in when it wasn't when it was notarized....is this considered fraud because the document was altered after it was notarized? should this person be prosecuted for altering a legal document? Would this be grounds to have the quit claim invalidated? also what if a severance of joint tenancy was also filed...would one document over ride the other?

Hi carolann,

I don't think it will be considered as legal to modify the deed in anyway after it has been notarized. You should contact a real estate attorney and check out what actions you can take against that person and whether or not you can invalidate the deed.

Thanks

Welcome carolann,

I agree with James' opinion. You should immediately contact a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this matter. The real estate attorney will let you know whether or not you can call the deed invalid or take any further steps against the person who has changed the details in the deed.
