  1. Dear Owner of Property:

    Based on your question it is not likely either party will succeed in recording the deed. To file a deed a whole host of other documents are required to file along with the deed (some are pre-filed electronically.)

    So this sounds as though the owner defrauded two potential grantees in a real property transaction on successive days and that not one of the three parties involved used an attorney or followed any of the required procedure and prepared the necessary real property transfer papers, smoke detector affidavit and so on.

    Good luck.

    The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.

  2. The fact that you use the phrase race jurisdiction leads me to believe you probably already know your answer.

  3. Are you asking licensed attorneys for help with your property law outline?

    This communication is intended only to provide general information. No attorney-client relationship is created.

  4. I remember this to be a multiple choice question on my Property exam. What law school are you in? Who is your professor?
