What is the name of your state? COLORADO
My mom moved into her home in 1996 along with my sister and I, her only children (she had just gotten divorced) and she recorded a quit-claim deed on the home to herself, my sister and me (joint tenancy) as we all lived there and all pitched in everywhere.
She passed away in 11/2002, and we discovered that the deed had not been recorded properly because the legal description was incorrect (Said LOT D when it's really LOT 1).
So, we have the copy that was made when we originally signed it and notarized it now, and a county clerk that will gladly record it now for us using this copy.
My question is: if we record this deed, and then sell the home, the title company will surely realize that we recorded the deed after my mother's death. Any caveats? Any potentially broken laws? I want to stress that this is not fraudulent in any way, we would just be recording the deed that we all THOUGHT was recorded long ago, to keep the house from going to creditors through my mother's estate.
