How do I know if I need a quitclaim deed?

The process of buying and selling real estate often entails numerous transactions related to the transferring of ownership. A quitclaim deed is directly related to ownership transfers when the property is not actually being sold. Oftentimes, quitclaim deeds are used when property is being transferred amongst family members.

The following scenarios may require the use of a quitclaim deed:

  • Property owner gets married and wants to add the spouse to the title
  • Property owners divorce and one spouse wants to be removed from the title
  • Grandparents are gifting property to their grandchildren
  • Property is being put into a family trust

Most quitclaim deeds require specific information before they’re considered valid. This information includes the grantor and grantee names, a legal description of the property, the county where the property was purchase, and signatures of both a notary public and the grantor.
