Quitclaim Deed

What is a Quitclaim Deed?

A Quitclaim Deed, also known as a non-warranty deed, is used to transfer property interest from one person (grantor) to another (grantee). Quitclaim Deed is sometimes misspelled as "quick claim deed".

A Quitclaim Deed is often used between parties who know each other, such as family members or divorcing couples, as with a Quitclaim Deed there is no warranty to the property title.

What is a property title?

The title of a property refers to all the rights of property ownership, including the owner's ability to transfer or sell interest in the property, such as through a deed.

What can I use a Quitclaim Deed for?

You can use a Quitclaim Deed:

  • To add a spouse's name to a property title
  • To transfer property to a child, sibling, or other family member
  • To transfer property interest to a business partner
  • To remove a spouse's name from a property title after divorce
  • To bequeath property to someone in a Last Will upon death

What is the difference between a Quitclaim Deed and Warranty Deed?

A Warranty Deed is used in most property sales, and makes a guarantee that the grantor owns clear and complete interest in the title and the property is free of all liens.

Alternatively, a Quitclaim Deed does not include the warranty that the grantor owns full rights to the property.

How do I fill out a Quitclaim Deed?

List the Grantor and Grantee(s)

The grantor is the party transferring his or her interest in the property title to another person.

The grantee is the party receiving the interest in the property.

Grantors and grantees can be individuals or corporations.

Determine Consideration

Consideration is the price the grantee pays the grantor for the property interest. Listing an amount for consideration in the document is required to have a valid agreement. Even if the transfer is a gift, a small amount, such as $1-10, is often listed as consideration.

Describe the Property

A legal description of the property needs to be included in the Quitclaim Deed. This can be found on an old deed or at your local County Clerk or Registry Office.

A parcel ID number will also need to be listed on your Quitclaim Deed in some cases. It can be found on past tax statements.

Execute the Deed

To execute the Quitclaim Deed, the grantor needs to sign the deed in front of a notary public. Some states require witnesses to sign the deed in addition to a notary public. Once it has been signed, the Quitclaim Deed is filed in the local County Clerk or Registry Office and sent to the grantee after it has been recorded.

Does a Quitclaim Deed remove me from the mortgage?

Although a Quitclaim Deed removes a person's name from the property title along with removing their ownership rights, it does not eliminate that person's responsibility for the mortgage on the property.

In other words, signing a Quitclaim Deed simply removes your name from the title, it does not absolve you from paying any debts you incurred as an owner of the property.
