Pennsylvania state requirements for real estate property deeds are clearly laid out in statute. The deed must include the county, state, date of transfer, persons involved in the sale, a notary signature and the notary expiration date. If any of this pertinent information is omitted, the deed may be considered invalid.
The Grantee’s address must be included as well. It must be a physical location, P.O. Boxes are not acceptable. The tax parcel ID numbers for the local municipality are to be on the document. Book volume and page numbers for previous transfers involving this parcel of real estate, with instrument numbers must be included on all documents which refer back to the original recording of this piece of real property.
Statements of value must be included for the purpose of levying real estate transfer taxes to the state and the local municipality, and are considered to be part of the deed itself.
Applicable fees are to be paid along with the submission of the document for recording. Most counties accept cash, personal or business check or money order. The realty transfer taxes are 1% to the state and 1 % to the local municipality, based on the purchase price that is laid out as part of the deed, listed as consideration.
If any errors are found on the deed, it is the purchasers’ responsibility to remedy the mistakes, by filing an updated, corrected document with the county recorder’s office as soon as the error is recognized.
