Quitclaim Deed Form Requirements for Kentucky.
Content:
KRS § 381.060 states that a written deed conveys all the grantor’s interest in a property unless specific interests are reserved. KRS §§ 382.030 and 382.040 discuss words that impart warranty protection to the grantee. Because quitclaim deeds contain no guarantees of title, be certain that the text of the document does not mention any type of warranty. KRS § 382.110 details the requirement for every conveyance to include a reference to the transaction wherein the grantor gained ownership of the property. KRS § 382.130 includes an obligation for the grantor’s signature to be proved in front of a notary or other official authorized to administer oaths. KRS §§ 382.135 and 382-335 add the need for the names and addresses of all grantors and grantees, a signed statement of consideration, and an address to receive future property tax bills. OAG 81-100 details the requirement for a complete legal description of the real estate. KRS § 382.180 notes the necessity for a certified English translation to be submitted for recording along with any executed deed in another language. KRS § 382.335 supplements the list of essential information with the need for the name, address, and signature of the individual who prepared the quitclaim deed and the parcel ID of the property.

Also consider including a heading that expresses the intent of the document (Quit Claim Deed), the date the deed is executed (when it goes into effect), and printed or typed names beneath every signature.

Recording:
Kentucky follows a "notice" recording statute as defined in KRS § 382.080, which states that no deed conveying title to real property "shall be good against a purchaser for a valuable consideration without notice thereof." Valuable consideration is usually money. KRS § 382.110 expands this, to clarify that all "deeds . . . required by law to be recorded to be effectual against purchasers without notice . . . shall be recorded in the county clerk’s office of the county in which the property conveyed, or the greater part thereof, is located." Recording the deed enters the change of ownership into the public record, thereby providing what’s known as constructive notice to any future bona fide purchasers (buyers for value, usually money) of that parcel. In addition, it preserves a clear chain of title (ownership history) which may simplify future sales of the land. For example, the grantor quit claims his/her interest in a parcel of real property to grantee A, who fails to record the executed deed according to the statute. The grantor then quit claims his/her interest in the same land to grantee B, who records the deed after it is executed. In most cases, grantee B retains ownership of the property if a title dispute arises.

In short, recording the quit claimdeed as soon as possible after execution is a simple way to preserve the rights and interests of all parties.


Kentucky Quit Claim Deed forms must meet local and state statutory requirements for content and format. The most important county formatting requirements in Kentucky 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.
