Q: If the grantee s post office address is wrong on quite Claim Deed, Does it make the instrument defective or invalid
The Quit Claim Deed has been recorded
A: Grantee's mailing address is wrong rather than the address of the property conveyed? There's no issue if it was some sort of scriveners error in the address. You can file a corrective deed.
A: Or, if you are the grantee, simply notify the post office of a change in address. You should probably also notify the tax collector.
A: No, an incorrect address for the grantee would be considered a non-material defect and would not invalidate the deed.
