First off, I’m fairly embarrassed about this as I pride myself in attention to details.
However I just had a deed signed and notarized by a seller and it is in the mail towards the county for recording now. As soon as I received a copy of the signed deed from the notary I went ahead and listed the parcel for sale. 2 days later I found my buyer. I sent the buyer the copy of my signed deed to prove that I owned the property. At this point I noticed something strange. The line on my warranty deed which should read “NAME OF COUNTY I’M INVESTING IN”, instead reads “United States”. I wrote the name of our country instead of the county on the warranty deed…
So that deed hasn’t reached the county yet. I know this because I have a tracking number and it is scheduled to arrive tomorrow. Should I expect the county to nullify this deed and not record it because of the error? The APN Number and Property Description are correct.
Super bummed about this because it was going to be my first deal, and now I’m not sure if I’m going to have to tell my new buyer that this deal can’t happen right now because I need to take a few weeks and fix my error.
I appreciate any input or criticism! Obviously this is a good learning experience and I know I’ll be fine in the long run
