Tips and warnings
- State regulations for quitclaim deeds vary. Contact your attorney, local government or County Recorder, usually at the county courthouse, for specific information needed on the form. Use a word processor to type in the additional information onto the form. Go to a bank that handles your accounts and ask someone to verify the correctness of the deed's information.
- Remember to have the form notarized. Most banks offer this service free to account holders. Some states require both grantor and grantee to sign the quitclaim deed.
- The term "Grantor" designates the person owning the property. "Grantee" refers to the person receiving exclusive title to that property. Property includes among others, joint ownership for a home, land, mobile home or farm.
- Remember to record the document, usually with your County Recorder after notarization.
