Deed Drafting

At Thrift McLemore, we understand the necessity of drafting well-researched and comprehensive deeds in both commercial and residential real estate transactions. Our real estate experts specialize in drafting deeds that meet the structure of the transaction and address the legal status of the property to assure its effective transfer during the sale. We draft all types of deeds, including the standard, estate, and specialty deeds, which are recognized within the Georgia real estate transaction system. Our attorneys also draft the deeds required to obtain a mortgage or other financing for the property as required by Georgia law, which is called a deed to secure debt.

In addition to drafting deeds, our real estate attorneys also correct deed errors that have gone unnoticed until the owners attempt to sell the property. Simple mistakes such as misspelled names, incorrect address information and incorrect legal description of the property can cause serious problems until they are corrected, and can result in expensive delays in the sale process.

Our attorneys work to resolve these issues quickly and efficiently to minimize the delays and problems that these errors can cause.

Our Aim

Our aim is to draft deeds to meet all of the legal and technical requirements as smoothly and quickly as possible. This process involves researching the property title to verify current ownership and identifying any liens that may impact the sale. When needed, we will work with you to correct errors in an existing deed to allow you to sell the property.
