This depends on the situation. What do you mean "security deed?" As in, to enforce a debt on which there is a lien and you own that lien? Or what exactly is the situation?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
Welcome and thank you for your question. I am different attorney. For any debt that was paid off you should have received a release that you would have recorded that would show the security deed was satisfied in full.
"DEED TO SECURE DEBT AND SECURITY AGREEMENT
29. Release.Provided that (i) all Indebtedness secured by this Security Instrument has been paid or performed in full, and (ii) all fees due Lender in connection with release of this Security Instrument have been paid, this Security Instrument shall be canceled and surrendered by Lender. Upon the payment and performance in full of all Indebtedness, and upon request of Borrower, Lender shall also surrender to Borrower the Note and all other documents evidencing the Indebtedness secured by this Security Instrument. The recitals in the release of any matters or facts shall be conclusive proof of their truthfulness. Such release shall operate as a reassignment of the Rents and profits assigned to Lender under the Assignment of Leases and Rents. Lender shall deliver this Security Instrument and the Note after release to the Person or Persons legally entitled thereto.”
It should have been properly released.
The statute of limitations on a security deed is 20 YEARS AFTER MATURITY http://www.networkclosing.com/georgia-information
The difference with recorded documents is that they are a little trickier to remove. There a couple ways to have this removed. Is the person or company that had the security deed still available to sign a release? the court can release the liens against your property. The easiest path is getting a release, which you are owed, if not the court can order the release.
