Pennsylvania Quit Claim Deed Form

Updated April 12, 2024

A Pennsylvania quit claim deed is a basic form that allows for the quick transfer of an interest or claim on property from one party to another. This document will define such items as the Consideration Paid, the Grantor, Grantee, and the Property in combination with the required language for this document. This form must be filed with the Pennsylvania Recorder of Deeds servicing the same County as that of the Property at hand. It should be noted; this document does not act as verification of the Grantor’s actual status. Thus, it is typically used with familiar parties.
