The requirements for a valid deed are a grantor, a grantee, a writing and subscription, delivery, and acceptance. Recordation is not essential to the validity of a deed. The date of change in ownership resulting from a transfer effected by an unrecorded deed is the date of delivery of the deed. C 12/11/1997.
