Document Formatting Requirements
The transfer tax form (PT-61) must be prepared and filed with all deeds that transfer property. This must be done online at the Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority website.

• Submit documents on white 8.5x11 inch paper. To ensure legibility, use black ink in a font size of at least 10 point.

• Deeds must be signed by the grantor in front of a notary and one witness. Corresponding names should be typed or printed beneath signatures.

• On the first page, provide a top margin of at least 3 inches. All other margins on the first page and on subsequent pages should be at least 1 inch.

• At the top of the first page, provide the name and address of the person to whom the document will be returned after recording.

• Also on the first page, the name and address of the grantee needs to be given.

• A legal description of the real property should be provided. This should include the lot, block, and subdivision name.

A deed may be recorded at any time; but a prior unrecorded deed loses its priority over a subsequent recorded deed from the same vendor when the purchaser takes such deed without notice of the existence of the prior deed.
