New York Quitclaim Deed Recording Requirements and Recording Act:
The grantor to the New York quitclaim deed must sign and acknowledge the instrument before it is presented for recording in the county where the property is located. A recorder may refuse a quitclaim deed if the grantee’s address is not included, if a legal description is missing or is inadequate, or if the deed is not written in English (RPP Article 9-333). An acknowledgment of the real estate instrument can only be made by the person who executed the quitclaim deed, and proof of acknowledgment can only be made by a witness to the execution of the deed, who must then subscribe his name as a witness to the conveyance (RPP Article 9-292).

Various tax forms, such as a TP-584 and an RP-5217, need to accompany a quitclaim deed that is presented for recording. Different counties in New York may have different transfer return rates, requirements, and additional forms needed in order to properly record with the county recorder. For further reference, check the Laws of New York Real Property section or the county listings on this website.

An unrecorded quitclaim deed is not valid against subsequent buyers or persons who acquire by an exchange or contract to purchase the same real property or a portion of it (RPP, Article 9-291). The rights of a purchaser for valuable consideration are protected, unless it appears that he had previous notice of the fraudulent intent of his immediate grantor or of the fraud that invalidates the title of such grantor (RPP, Article8-266).

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