New Jersey Quit Claim Deed Form

Select the county where the PROPERTY is located.
In order to record a quitclaim deed form in New Jersey, it must include an adequate legal description of the real property, the nature of the interest, and the fact of the transfer. The identity of the grantor and grantee should be established in writing and signed and acknowledged by the grantor (25:1-11). A quitclaim deed must be acknowledged or proved before a county recorder will consider it. A statement of true consideration or an affidavit that explains the exemption of any fees should accompany the quitclaim deed. If the transfer is of property upon which there is new construction, the words "New Construction" must be typed or printed in upper-case lettering at the top of the first page (46:15-6). Additional requirements, such as formatting guidelines and transfer fees may apply to the recordation of a quitclaim deed. These are explained in the New Jersey section of this website, as well as in the New Jersey Statutes.

In order to record a quitclaim deed with a county clerk or register of deeds in New Jersey, it must be signed and acknowledged by the grantor, in addition to meeting other recording prerequisites as set by statute. To have a quitclaim deed acknowledged, the grantor should appear before an officer specified in 46:14-6.1 and acknowledge that it was executed as the maker’s own act. The officer taking the acknowledgment shall sign a certificate stating such acknowledgment or proof (46:14-2.1). Any of the officers listed in 46:14-6.1 of the New Jersey Revised Statutes are authorized to take acknowledgments or proof of deeds. Quitclaim deeds can be acknowledged in this state or out of state.

Until it is recorded in the proper county in New Jersey, a quitclaim deed is void and ineffectual against subsequent judgment creditors without notice, as well as subsequent bona fide purchasers for valuable consideration who are also without notice. Unrecorded, a quitclaim deed is valid and operative only between the parties to the instrument. The priority of documents is given to the first instrument recorded (46:5-6).

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

Said: The Quitclaim Deed I helped order for my friends was helpful. I have no idea what a notary block for use in the State of Idaho looks like. My friends didnt know where to look or what to do and (hopefully) now that theyve signed theirs before a notary and sent it in for recording it will meet their needs. Why else would Kootenai County have a form of Deed posted on their website -- unless it is appropriate for use? Simple and easy. Thanks.
