Re:  Registration of Deed with Newtown Borough

The Council of the Borough of Newtown enacted Borough Ordinance # 662 on April 12, 2005, which was amended on February 10, 2009, and requires that each and every purchaser, devisee, grantee or other person acquiring title to real property in Newtown Borough, in any manner whatsoever shall, within 2 days after recording the instrument with the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds, present to the Newtown Borough Secretary a copy of the deed or deeds and/or other instruments of conveyance.

Attached is a Real Estate Deed Registration Application Form, a list of items required when registering each application and instructions for recording a deed with the Borough Secretary.  These documents may be copied and distributed and are available on the Borough website, or for pickup at Borough Hall. No other form may be used and no other form will be accepted.

If you have any questions regarding this notice, please do not hesitate to contact the Borough Secretary at the address shown above.
