S.T. Wooten Corp. v. Front Street Construction, LLC After the defendant-bank’s deed of trust on the defendant-owner’s property was recorded, and after the plaintiff-subcontractor performed work on the property, the owner and grantor recorded a new deed to correct a scrivener’s error that had incorrectly conveyed only a one-half interest to the owner when both parties intended that a 100 percent interest be conveyed. In order to reflect the corrected deed, the bank’s deed of trust was re-recorded, but this occurred after the subcontractor had performed work on the property. The trial court correctly reformed the deed and declared the bank’s deed of trust superior to the subcontractor’s lien.
