when an owner of land provides the public with a means of obtaining knowledge of his rights in the land, that owner is providing constructive notice of his interest in the land.
a person can provide constructive notice in two ways: Take possession of the land. Possession of land by a person other than the grantor gives constructive notice. A grantee who has an unrecorded deed provides constructive notice upon taking possession of the property by:
-occupying the property.
-renting the property to a tenant who occupies the property.
-any other means that would enable an interested person to determine that perhaps the owner of record is not the current owner[ Properly record the deed. A better way of protecting one's rights is to record the deed. If an instrument is recorded, a purchaser cannot successfully claim that he did not know about the contents of the recorded document. Recording helps to forestall actions arising from persons with unrecorded interests in the land by giving priority to the person who records first.
a person who has actual knowledge of a fact is said to have actual notice. A person has constructive notice of ownership when a deed is recorded and has actual notice when he actually sees the recorded deed. While he has constructive notice when a person is in possession of property, he has actual notice when he knows the person is in possession of the property, or knows of the person's right to possession.
1. Constructive- take possession of land- properly record deed 2. Actual- see recorded deed- Know person has unrecorded deed, Delivery is the final act of the grantor signifying an intention that the deed should currently take effect. Upon valid delivery, title passes. Note, delivery does not mean manually transferring the deed. It means the intention of the grantor to make the deed currently effective to transfer title. Therefore, a deed is presumed delivered if given to the grantee, given to escrow or recorded,
