How to Remove a Deceased Person from a Deed in Bucks County

In Bucks County, there is generally no need to remove your Husband’s name from the Deed upon his death. In your situation, as tenants by the entirety, when you choose to sell the house, you can simply provide his death certificate and have his name removed when the new deed is filed.

If you still wish to remove his name, the filing fee to remove a deceased’s spouse name from a deed is subject to the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Fee Schedule. The Office of Recorder of Deeds of Bucks County currently charges a $77.00 fee to remove a deceased spouse.

Klenk Law is an exceptional practice. Their fine lawyers and staff team up to produce excellent results for their clients. They excel at explaining the often cryptic laws and policies that govern estate planning right down to the complexities of the various "trust" frameworks. Peter himself manages each client together with his great team, and he has a rare quality to be both a walking encyclopedia of planning minutia and also one of the most likable lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is truly generous in intellect and in his personal approach to getting the "big picture" for complex family structures. I trust him implicitly to help me make the right choices for the future. In short, Klenk Law is a gem of a firm.
