How will I fix a wrong APN on the deed?

After recording the Grand Deed (transferring the title from my husband and myself as joint tenant to our living trust), I found out that the Assessors Parcel Number (APN) is wrong on the recorded Deed (after comparing to our property tax bill). The legal description of our property address is correct on the recorded Deed. Do I need to do anything to correct this APN error? How critical is this error? Thanks in advance for your help.

It is unclear where it is wrong based on your description. If the assessor has it wrong, call them and ask them to correct it. If the deed is wrong, you can file a correction deed with the correct APN.

You can file a corrected deed should it prove necessary. However, before doing that you should consult your local recorder and assessor's office to see if they feel the correction to be necessary.

You should re-record as a correction. It will have no impact on assessed value.
