What is the Pennsylvania Grant Deed?

In Pennsylvania, title to real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a grant deed, but the state does not include an official form in the statutes. Use a grant deed to transfer a fee simple interest with covenants that the title is free of any encumbrances (except for those stated in the deed) and that the grantor holds an interest in the property and is free to convey it. The word "grant" in the conveyancing clause typically signifies a grant deed.

A lawful grant deed includes the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status; the consideration given for the transfer; and the grantee's full name, mailing address, marital status, and vesting. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership. For Pennsylvania residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A conveyance of real estate to two or more persons creates a tenancy in common, unless otherwise stated (68 Pa.C.S. Section 110). A tenancy by entirety is available for spouses, and must be explicitly stated. In Pennsylvania, any property acquired by either spouse while married is presumed to be marital property "regardless of whether title is held individually or by the parties in some form of co-ownership" (23 Pa.C.S. Section 3501). Consult a lawyer for guidance on marital property implications.

As with any conveyance of realty, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. Finally, the form must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. The completed deed must be signed by the grantor (and his or her spouse, if applicable) in the presence of a notary.

All deeds in Pennsylvania require a certificate of residence. This certificate ensures the accuracy of the information used for updating the billing address for property tax bills and assessment notices, and should contain addresses recognized by the USPS. Enter the full name and mailing addresses of both the grantee and the tax bill recipient. The certificate must be signed by the grantee or the grantee's agent.

Any deed pertaining to an interest in real property for which a coal severance applies requires a notice pursuant to 52 Pa.C.S. 1551 (as part of the Conveyance Document Notice of Coal or Surface Support Severance Law). Any deed pertaining to an interest in real property situated in a Pennsylvania county in which bituminous coal has been found and separately assessed for taxation requires an additional notice signed by the grantee pursuant to 52 Pa.C.S. 1406.14 (as part of the Bituminous Mine Subsidence and Land Conservation Act). Note on the face of the deed whether the instrument requires either notice. Contact a lawyer to review the specific situation and ensure the deed contains all required notices.

Pennsylvania levies a Realty Transfer Tax based on the consideration paid, which is due upon recording. If the transfer is exempt from the tax, state the reason for the exemption on the face of the deed. See 61 Pa.C.S. 91.193(6) for a list of exemptions.

All deeds require a Statement of Value Form. Some counties require multiple copies. Contact the recorder for more information. Deeds falling under the jurisdiction of more than one municipality must stipulate the division of transfer taxes.

Some Pennsylvania counties require that deeds be submitted to the assessor prior to recording. Contact the local recording office to verify correct recording procedure. Record the original completed deed, along with any additional materials, at the Recorder of Deeds' office in the county where the property is located. (The City of Philadelphia handles recording for property in city limits.)

I found the forms to be most helpful and just what I needed. Thank you! NOTE TO THE COMPANY (for a suggested changeimprovement on the SAMPLE quit claim deed) You may want to change the state listed at the bottom of the first page of the sample from Iowa to Nebraska since these quit claim forms are for Douglas County Nebraska and all other references are to Nebraska.
