Maine Deed Forms

A Maine deed is a document that transfers real estate ownership from a grantor to a grantee. The legal ownership of real property is legally identified by its “title,” and is conveyed through a deed that is recorded and kept at the registry of deeds for the property’s jurisdiction. Unless the conveyance is exempt, the grantee will be required to pay real estate transfer tax on the property transaction by completing and filing the Real Estate Transfer Tax Declaration Form with the deed and making the payment.
