Subject: Aestar –When does a deed become legally effective?
Aestar LLC supervises the sale transactions, verifies legal documents, and insures real estate titles.
Aestar LLC is a different title company. Aestar offers knowledge to protect consumers: buyers and sellers.
A deed is not effective until a valid deed has been delivered by the grantor and accepted by the grantee. For example, you must give the deed to your spouse and your spouse must accept the transfer. You must keep a record of delivery and acceptance in case that your unrecorded deed is challenged in court such as divorce. Therefore recordation is a short-hand way of satisfying the requirement of delivery and acceptance. A recorded deed means delivered and accepted.
