The first time that I saw that a title company had attempted to "fix" a faulty conveyance - such as one omitting the "Exhibit A" that actually described the property that was the subject of the instrument - by simply adding the missing exhibit and rerecording the instrument, I raised my eyebrows. More recently and more frequently, I'm seeing a bizarre variation on that scenario in which the title agent executes an affidavit stating that the conveyance was mistakenly recorded with such-and-such a deficiency, but should have been recorded in the form attached to the affidavit. In other words, the actual grantor to the screwed-up conveyance is not a party to the supposed "correction". This renders the correction, of course, a nullity; merely some title agent's idea about the easiest way to make it appear that a severe defect had been fixed. Is this a practice elsewhere in the US as well as Texas? If this trend continues unchecked, I don't know who will be left with record title in fifty years.
