A grantor who has conveyed by an effective, unambiguous deed cannot, by executing a subsequent deed, make a substantial change in the name of the grantee, decrease the size of the premises or the extent of the estate granted, impose a condition or limitation upon the interest granted, or otherwise diminish the grant of the prior deed, even though the corrective deed purports to correct or modify the prior deed. Recording of a deed that violates this standard will not impair the marketability of the title established by the prior deed.
Comment 1. A grantor may not undo or qualify an otherwise valid conveyance in order to correct or modify the prior valid conveyance unilaterally. To effect any change of the type described in this standard, the original grantee or his or her successor should convey back to the grantor of the prior deed and the grantor of the prior deed should then execute a corrective deed effecting the change which should then be recorded.
