Document Formatting Requirements

* Unless it is a corrective deed, all warranty deeds require a PT-61. Unless exempt, the transfer tax payment is due at the time of recording. The PT-61 form can be accessed on the GSCCCA website.

* A real property deed must be in writing, signed by the maker, and attested by at least two witnesses.

* No prescribed form is essential to the validity of a deed to lands. If the deed can sufficiently make known the transaction between the parties, no want of form will invalidate it.

* For a purchaser filing a quit claim deed, in all cases where property is redeemed, the purchaser at the tax sale should make a quit claim deed to the defendant. The quit claim deed needs to include the name of the person who paid the redemption money, and the capacity in which the claim or right of interest pursuant to which the redemption money was paid.
