At some point, you may decide to pass your real estate to someone else. You don’t have to sell it to a stranger’ you can give it out as a gift. The Ohio Quitclaim Deed Form is an essential document you should sign when concluding such a deal.
As you can guess from its name, deed form allows the grantor (the person transferring the property) to declare that they no longer claim the property. The person getting the property is called the grantee.
It is recommended to use this record if the deal happens between people who know each other well (family members, spouses, friends, business partners, and so on). A divorcing couple can also use it to split their property.

You should specify where the discussed property is: write its full address. If there is any official number given to the parcel where the property is located, insert it below.
3. Ask the Grantor’s Spouse to Sign
The grantor’s spouse has to write their name in the suitable line to waive rights to the property (if the grantor has a spouse).
4. Date and Sign the Form
Both parties have to append their signatures and date the form.
5. Ask a Notary to Sign
You should notarize your deed in the state of Ohio. So, after signing the document, ask for a notary’s verification.
Keep in mind that your form must be registered to become valid. In Ohio, the process is completed through the local county recorder’s office where the real estate is situated. Check the Ohio Recorders’ Association site to find the appropriate office.
