Maryland Deed Transfer Law: Prerequisites to Recording in the Land Records

www.reichertlegal.comThere are several important steps and decisions that must be made when properly filing a Maryland real estate deed. One step that is occasionally overlooked, but will frustrate the property transfer, is the Maryland “Certificate of Preparation.” Maryland law provides the following:

“No deed, mortgage, or deed of trust may be recorded unless it bears the certification of an attorney at law that the instrument has been prepared by an attorney or under an attorney’s supervision, or a certification that the instrument was prepared by one of the parties named in the instrument.”
