272.15 DEED TO CORRECT TITLE.
When a deed purporting to convey or quitclaim any parcel of land, the record title to which
appears to be in two or more persons, is presented to the county attorney, accompanied by an
abstract of title to such land, the attorney shall examine such deed and abstract, upon tender of a
fee of $5 therefor. On finding that such deed is given for the purpose of correcting a defect in
the title, or on account of a technical error in a prior conveyance, the attorney shall so certify
upon the deed; and thereupon the county recorder shall record it, if otherwise entitled to record,
notwithstanding that there are unpaid taxes or assessments upon such land.
