Fees Reduced for Filing Deeds in Philadelphia to Remove Deceased Spouse’s Name

Posted on Tue Jul 17, 2012, on Estate Planning

Good news for the surviving spouses who owned houses in Philadelphia with their now deceased spouses either Jointly with a Right of Survivorship or as Tenants in the Entireties (Tenancy by the Entirety). Until recently to file a quitclaim deed placing the house into the surviving spouse’s name it was necessary to pay a $230.00 filing fee to Philadelphia. Compared to other counties, such as Montgomery County or Bucks County, this fee was rather steep. Now Bill No. 110206 reduces that fee.
