§ 13.003. INSTRUMENTS PREVIOUSLY RECORDED IN OTHER
COUNTIES. The original or a certified copy of a conveyance,
covenant, agreement, deed of trust, or mortgage, relating to land,
that has been recorded in a county of this state other than the
county where the land to which the instrument relates is located, is
valid as to a creditor or a subsequent purchaser who has paid a
valuable consideration and who does not have notice of the
instrument only after it is recorded in the county in which the land
is located. Recording a previously recorded instrument in the
proper county does not validate an invalid instrument.
