A quitclaim deed that is intended to release any land or interest in land in Pennsylvania should be signed and acknowledged by the parties executing it and recorded in the proper county. A Certificate of Residence that lists the grantee's name and address and is signed by the grantee must accompany the quitclaim deed presented for recording (PS 16-9781).

The legal effect of recording a quitclaim deed in Pennsylvania is to give constructive notice to subsequent purchasers, mortgagees, and/or judgment creditors of the parties to the conveyance (PS 21-357). In order for a quitclaim deed to provide constructive notice, at least one of the following conditions must be satisfied upon recording: the Uniform Parcel Identifier is included and it is indexed properly in an index arranged by parcel identifier numbers, or the quitclaim deed is indexed properly as to the party in all alphabetical indexes (PS 21-358). A deed that is not acknowledged or recorded is fraudulent and void to any subsequent bona fide purchaser or mortgagee or holder of any judgment, without actual or constructive notice unless such deed, conveyance, contract, or instrument of writing is recorded before the recording of the deed or conveyance or the entry of the judgment under which such subsequent purchaser, mortgagee, or judgment creditor shall claim (PS 21-351).

This is a wonderful service and your staff is very responsive through the chat. My one suggestion is that there be an added sentence to your instructions that sates that once you upload there is nothing more to do as in a "submit" or "Finished uploading" button. After uploading instinct says there is something to click to let you all know that we have finished with our uploads.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

This was easy to use and only contained one glaring error-where to send the completed form to finish the process. I’ve completed the form, does this mean I get the amended deed sent to me? I think not.

Nice site, easy to maneuver around, and walks you thru completing forms. However, at the end, the forms listed poorly explained. It would be helpful to have better explanations of the forms so people know which forms they really need to download.

Easy to complete form. Examples were very helpful in using correct verbiage for form. Also way less expensive than the $500 an attorney wanted to charge me for doing the very same thing!!!

I can't believe I haven't been using this service since inception. The only thing I would recommend is to allow us to delete an erroneous upload. I accidentally uploaded the same document twice but I saw no way for me to correct my mistake other than to send an email.
