Can anyone prepare a deed, or do I have to use a title co.?

The deed preparation is a seller-expense and seller-responsibility in Kentucky.  

Technically, any seller (attorney or non-attorney) can prepare their own deed; however, it must contain all the correct language, for the situation, in order for it to do what you want it to do…and in order for it to be acceptable for recording by the county clerk’s office.  For these reasons, sellers (attorneys and non-attorneys) rarely ever prepare their own deeds – they want and need their deed to be correct so they use a reputable settlement agent – like Jett Title.
