query: does an unfiled deed have validity

Yes, an unfiled deed is valid but not protected. Recording a deed in the public records gives constructive notice to others that you are the rightful owner of that land. This notice prohibits the owner of record from selling the property to another. It also protects the land from liens and judgments of the owner of record.

Be smart and record your deed promptly.
