Michigan Enrolled House Bill 4928 – Making it Simpler to Correct Errors in Real Estate Documents

The mortgage crisis created a lot of problems in the last several years, one of those problems was the flooding of Register of Deeds offices with documents concerning real property – sheriff deeds related to foreclosures, assignments of mortgages after sub-prime lenders went out of business, etc… With this increase in filing came an increase in documents with errors.

How to fix these errors has been a matter of uncertainty.

The legislature passed a simple bill, HB 4928 to “simplify the process of correcting certain minor errors”.  A section is added to Public Act 123 of 1915 to allow affidavits to correct errors or omissions in previously recorded documents (MCL 565.451(d).
