  • Answer D is correct because recordation of a deed gives constructive notice “to the world” that title to the property has been conveyed. Therefore, the primary purpose of recording is to protect the grantee against subsequent purchasers by putting subsequent purchasers “on notice.” If the subsequent party claiming superior title had actual notice of the unrecorded deed, then the recordation objective would have been met and recordation of the deed would be irrelevant with regard to this particular party. An unrecorded deed is binding upon all persons having actual notice of its existence.
