Kentucky Deed Forms

Updated on October 26th, 2022

A Kentucky deed is a document that records the ownership and transfer of ownership of real estate. A property deed is filed at the county clerk’s office and provides a public record of the property’s title and any financial claims against it. When used for real estate purchases, a deed will include the names and addresses of the grantor (the seller) and grantee (the buyer), the purchase price, and a legal description of the property. Before the grantee can file the document, the grantor will need to obtain the acknowledgment of either two (2) witnesses or a notary public.
