    Georgia law regarding security deed
    What is the Georgia law if a security deed is not signed by an unofficial witness when house is purchased. My home was purchased in 2007 and I received a letter from a law firm to sign a Corrective Security Deed. I'm trying to determine if I don't sign will I have any legal issues with the lien holder I'm purchasing home from?

    The correction deed, also called deed of correction or deed of confirmation, must state that its sole purpose is to correct a specific error, which is usually identified by type. For example: an error in the grantor's name, or an error in the grantor's marital status. I would contact the attorney to clarify the issue.

    The correction is to correct a problem with the deed. You will want to do that, since the buyer, would have the right to seek further legal actual to make you correct it, or to be liable for his loss of value if you do not.
