Have you paid off your mortgage? Then find out what is a reconveyance deed and get your free deed of reconveyance form here.
A borrower (trustor) receives this deed when he or she pays off the mortgage. This official document performs a few important roles:
This document must be signed by the trustee (mortgage holder, title company). In Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, South Carolina and Vermont, it has to be signed by witnesses as well.
After the deed is signed, it has to be notarized and recorded with the county recorder (where the real property is located) within a certain time. This time limit depends on your state and the lender (beneficiary) may be fined if the deed is recorded late. Once this deed is recorded, the property will be clear of all liens.
*Make sure this full reconveyance deed form complies with your local real estate laws before using it. If you have any doubts, you can ask a real estate lawyer online.
