Deed Request Form

Note: Use this form to request a Maryland deed.  In most cases, an attorney will respond within 1 business day and  let you know whether Arden Law Firm, LLC will be able to prepare the deed.  However, submitting this form does not make you a client or promise that we will accept your deed request. 

The law firm does not agree to become your attorney or to prepare any deed until we talk to you and both agree!  We can prepare standard deeds for clients in most Maryland counties and have them ready for signature within 2-3 business days. Some cities/counties require a municipal lien release before recording the deed. 


















If we can prepare your deed, flat fees(as of 2017) are as follows: 

$240* for standard deeds 

$240* for Life Estate Deeds (sometimes called Lady Byrd or Lady Bird deeds)

$250 - $300* for Personal Representative / estate / inheritance deeds 

*Flat fees incude all legal work to prepare the deed but do not include any third party fees, filing fees or taxes.  All Maryland deeds also require a filing fee of $60 paid to the Clerk of the Circuit Court.  Included in the flat fee is an attorney retrieving and reviewing your existing deed (we can retrieve deeds in most Maryland counties so long as they were filed within the last 40 years), retrieving the current tax account information, preparing a new deed and any associated intake sheets and affidavits and coordinating recording.  

Title examinations and escrow services are not included in the deed prep fee.  If you would like an attorney to do a title search or examine your title, please call to discuss.

Clients remain responsible for all government recording charges, municipal lien releases, transfer/recordation tax or any other third party fees.
