altered quit claim deed

Posted on: 04th Mar, 2012 09:19 am
i was basically forced off a deed to my house when we were at the bank signing the quit claim and having it notarized. it wasn't noticed till later when i got a copy of the quit deed that was filed with the county that the document had been altered. the copy i have from the bank had no dates on it...(which was wrong of the notary) and the part where it says the document was prepared by was blank on my copy but filled in on the copy that was filed with the county. would the fact that this document was altered after it was signed in front of the notary be grounds to have it invalidated if taken to court?
Hi carolann,

The documents cannot be altered once they are signed in front of the notary. If something of this sort has happened, you should immediately contact a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this matter. If you wish, you can even take legal actions against that person.

If an error was made in a deed the conveyance will be construed in favor of the grantee. To make a substantial change the grantee would need to convey the property back to the original owner using the same language as in her acquisition deed. Then the transaction would need to be rerecorded with the corrective deed. When that type of situation occurs, it is good form to include a statement in the new deed that explains its purpose.

Fraud, as well as a crime: forgery. Take a copy to the prosecutor.
