Arizona Quit Claim Deed Form

Select the county where the PROPERTY is located.
For an Arizona quitclaim deed to be valid, it must conform to specific statutory requirements.

Content:
The quitclaim deed must be in writing with a heading that identifies the nature of the document. Original forms are preferred. LEGIBLE certified copies are also acceptable, but all signatures must be original. The grantor or an authorized agent must sign the deed in front of an officer certified to take acknowledgments. If the deed marks a change in ownership of real property, provide the prior recording information, including date, docket and page of the earlier document, and a complete legal description of the land. Quit claim deeds should also contain the names and addresses of all grantors and grantees named in the document, as well as a statement clarifying how the grantee wishes to hold title (vesting). Identify the type and amount of consideration exchanged for ownership of the property (usually money). (Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 33-401, et al (2012))

The body of the deed must contain a clear statement of intent to the effect of “I, grantor, hereby quit claim to grantee all my interest in the following real property:”

Recording:
Ariz. Rev. Stat § 11-480 defines minimum formatting requirements: maximum paper size is 8½” x 14” with minimum 10-point font. Margins must be at least ½” on the top, bottom, left and right, with a 2½” top margin on the first page. However, the top left 3½” of the first page may contain the names of the individual requesting recording and the return address.

Arizona follows a “notice” recording act. This means that any document conveying title to real property must be correctly recorded or the transaction is not complete (Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 33-411). In addition, it is the transferor’s (grantor) obligation to record the quit claim deed within sixty days of the transfer or to accept responsibility to defend the transferee (grantee) in any future claims against the grantee’s ownership of the land. (Ariz. Rev. Stat. § 33-411.01).


Arizona Quit Claim Deed forms must meet local and state statutory requirements for content and format. The most important county formatting requirements in Arizona are the margin requirements. Failing to meet the recorder's document margin requirements can lead to the document being assessed with a non-compliant fee or being outright rejected for recording.
