Real property transfers are governed by Title 33 of the Maine Revised Statutes.

A warranty deed under 33 M.R.S. 763 transfers real property from the seller (grantor) to the buyer (grantee). Using the statutory phrase "with warranty covenants" in the deed implies that the grantor warrants that they are the true owner of the property and have the legal right to convey it, and that the property is free of liens or encumbrances unless otherwise listed in the deed.

A lawful warranty deed identifies the names and addresses of each grantor and grantee, For Maine residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common and joint tenancy. An estate conveyed to two or more persons is considered a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy is clearly expressed (33 M.R.S. 159).

Include the source of title, and a complete legal description of the property; without these two things, the document does not constitute notice to third parties (33 M.R.S. 201-A(2)). The deed must be signed by each grantor, if there are more than one. Additional witnesses are not required to sign the deed, but it must be notarized and acknowledged by the grantor in the presence of an official listed in 33 M.R.S. 203. If applicable, the grantor's spouse must also sign the deed to release his or her interest in the property (33 M.R.S. 772-A-1).

A Transfer Tax Form (or Declaration of Value) must be filed at the County Register of Deeds' office at the same time as the recording of the deed (36 M.R.S 4641-4641N). If the sale is exempt from the transfer tax, state the exemption clearly on the form. The transfer tax is collected based on the consideration paid for each conveyance of property. Find the list of exemptions from this tax at 36 M.R.S. 4641-C.

Record the deed at the Register of Deeds' office in which the county is located. If the property is located in more than one county, record the deed in both counties (33 M.R.S. 201). All recorded real estate deeds, leases, or other written instruments pertaining to real estate in Maine will take precedence over unrecorded documents (33 M.R.S. 201). The instrument will not be effectual unless the deed is acknowledged and recorded in the registry of deeds.

In addition to the content requirements set forth by statute, the form must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. These may vary from county to county, so contact the local recording office with questions.

These forms were very easy to both download and print, as well as fill out on the site and then print. The instructions are clear and concise. We have not yet been to the County to file them, but we are expecting no issues.

The download of forms, etc. was easy and the guides that were provided were good, but more information would have been nice as to where to find tax map #, parcel #, and district mentioned in Exemptions from Property Transfer Fees (and Declaration of Consideration or Value.
In general, I was quite pleased with your product.

Extremely easy and fast recording of real estate records. I was impressed that it was less than 6 hours from the time I uploaded the document to Deeds.com to receiving confirmation that it was recorded by the county clerk. I would highly recommend this service to save you time and quickly get documents recorded!

LOVE THIS!! I am a REALTORand from time to time I have had to take documents for filing. I'm so glad I invested some time online researching eFiling services. The first few search results that populated required an expensive annual or monthly subscription. Luckily I continued to scroll and found Deeds.com. No annual or monthly subscription required. Just pay per use. I uploaded a ROL late one night and Deed.com had it eFiled the very next morning!!! They keep you updated throughout the process via email notifications which you click on the link provided in the email that directs you to your online portal to view the status and once your documents have been filed you can immediately download the filed of record documents including the receipt from the county in which the documents were filed. SO SIMPLE, CONVENIENT, & QUICK-THANK YOU DEEDS.com!!!
