Pennsylvania Deed Forms

A Pennsylvania deed is a legal document used for property title transfers between an owner (the grantor) and a grantee. A deed will indicate the present owner, whether any warranties against title defects are provided, and the consideration exchanged for the title. Most home sales are done under general or special warranty deeds as the grantee is afforded protection against defects such as liens or other encumbrances. A bargain and sale or quit claim deed, on the other hand, holds the grantee liable for any title defects and is often only used in situations such as foreclosure sales or gift transfers.
