                                  AN ACT

     Requiring the recorder of deeds of every county, except counties
        of the second class, in certain cases to report transfers of
        property to the commissioners of townships of the first class
        and to supervisors of townships of the second class. (Title
        amended July 25, 1953, P.L.573, No.151)

        The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
     hereby enacts as follows:

        Section 1.  It shall be the duty of the recorder of deeds of
     every county, except counties of the second class, upon written
     request therefor as herein provided, to furnish the township
     commissioners of each township of the first class and township
     supervisors of each township of the second class within the
     county a record of all transfers of property located within the
     township. When any township imposes a tax on the transfer of
     real property, the commissioners or supervisors shall transmit
     to the recorder of deeds written request for such record of
     transfers. Such record shall show the name of the grantor and
     grantee, a description of the property as mentioned in the deed,
     the consideration recited in the deed and the value of the
     Federal documentary stamps affixed to the deed. Such record
     shall be sent to the township commissioners or township
     supervisors, as the case may be, on or before the second Monday
     of each month.
        When a written request has been made for a record of
     transfers in a township, as herein provided, the recorder of
     deeds shall thereafter charge and collect, as a fee for the
     services hereinabove prescribed, the sum of twenty-five cents
     (25¢) for each deed recording the conveyance of land in such
     township.
        (1 amended July 25, 1953, P.L.573, No.151)
