Document Formatting Requirements
• A deed must be acknowledged by the grantor or by one of the persons executing the instrument. A certificate of acknowledgment or proof of execution must be endorsed on the deed or attached to it.

• Use white paper that is either 8.5 x 1 1 inches or 8.5 x 14 inches.

• A deed should contain, in addition to the name of the grantee, the grantee’s mailing address.

• Beneath the signature of the grantor, grantee, and person taking acknowledgment, the name of each person signing should be printed or typed. Names that are used for indexing must be indexed as they appear typed or printed under each signature.

• When the register of deeds receives an instrument, they will certify on the instrument the day, hour, and minute when it was received for recording, along with the book and page number where the document is located. If there is not sufficient room on the deed for the placement of such information, the register of deeds will add an additional page, for which an extra $2 can be charged.

• The marital status of grantors to the conveyance should be stated in the deed.


• All documents of conveyance must be accompanied by a Real Estate Transfer Tax Form. The transfer tax, which is $4.40 per $1000, is determined by the amount at which the property is sold. The transfer tax is equally divided between buyer and seller, unless exempt pursuant to Title 36, 4641-C. An exemption from the transfer tax must be clearly stated on the transfer tax form. The Real Estate Transfer Tax Form and instructions can be found on the websites of the Registry of Deeds or the Maine Department of Revenue.
