Can a Four Year Old Deed That Was Never Filed Still Be Used to Transfer Ownership in a Property?

Under certain conditions, a Deed that was signed by the parties to transfer property several years in the past can still be valid.

Those conditions: if the Deed is properly signed and notarized and if the property is still in the same owner’s name, then the Deed can be recorded with the county in which it resides thereby transferring ownership to the persons named in that Deed.

(The original owner of the property can even have passed away and the Deed is still valid; the signature made prior to the original owner’s death is the necessary piece required to make the Deed valid and thus can be filed.)
