You have decided to transfer your property to another person. What do you need to do about this? Part of this process and paperwork can be the Quitclaim deed. Let’s figure out what this document is, how it works, and how you can complete it.
By drafting this free printable deed form, the grantor transfers their rights and interests in the property to another person. However, in principle, there is nothing in the document guaranteeing that the grantor has this property or at least any rights to it. As the grantee, if you sign the document and then find out that the person had no rights to the property, there is nothing you can do to them.
Therefore, this form is usually used to transfer property rights from one family member to another or between your companies or trusts.
To be well oriented in drawing up the right quitclaim deed form and avoid mistakes, it is necessary to know the law governing its use.
The document must be signed in the presence of a notary public. The form is signed by:
You should find the County Recorder’s Office that serves the area where the property is located and register the document there.
It is recommended to use the wording set out in § 58-2204.
