Each state has its own statutory requirements for quit claim deed forms. These requirements determine the content or text that is in the deed.

Quitclaim deed forms must meet statutory conditions for content and format. In addition, many local recording authorities add requirements for margins, paper size, property identification, and many other details. If a deed form is not in accordance with both the local and state standards, there may be additional fees charged for recording or the form may be rejected altogether.

This type of deed form is most commonly used in transfers of real property between known parties. For example, transfers between husband and wife typically involve completing a quit claim deed form. Life events such as marriage and divorce can bring with them a need for one party to use this form to transfer their rights to the property to the other party. This form generally offers no guarantees or warranties so it is important for the grantee (the party receiving the interest in the property) to know the condition of the title before accepting the quit claim document. Once the document is accepted by the grantee it is considered to be executed and the transfer is completed.

Elements of a Quit Claim Deed Form:
While each County has specific formatting requirements for the recording of documents there are main elements that are common to all real estate deeds.
  • Title. The title of a legal document tells the world what type of document it is. In this case the title is "Quit Claim Deed"
  • Executed Date. This is the date that the legal document was completed, signed, and executed.
  • Grantor. This is the person or persons that is transferring their rights to the real estate to someone else. For the purpose of a quit claim deed the term "person" can refer to a natural person, an LLC, a Partnership, a Corporation, a Trust or Trustee, or any other entity that can legally own real estate.
  • Grantee. This is the person that is receiving the rights to the real estate that are being transferred. Again here, the term "person" refers to any entity that can legally own real estate.
  • Habendum. This is the meat of the deed, the legal speak which actually transfers the rights to the property. Generally it is a phrase similar to: "...does hereby remise, release and quitclaim unto the said Grantee forever, all the right, title, interest and claim which the said Grantor has in and to the following described parcel of land, and improvements and appurtenances thereto..."
  • Consideration. This is what the Grantee gives to the Grantor in return for the rights to the property. While in some cases a deed may be enforceable without consideration it certainly muddies the water. It's a good idea to check with a tax accountant before transferring real estate with a "no consideration" or "gift" deed as there may be tax issues.
  • Legal Description. Here is where the description of the property being transferred is listed. The format of the legal description varies from state to state. The types of legal descriptions are: metes and bounds, rectangular survey, and lot and block. The "lot and block" legal description is the most common however it depends on your state. A typical lot and block description looks like: "QCD SUBDIVISION, 2ND AMD, LOT 112 BLOCK 3".
  • Signatures. Most states require only the Grantor to sign the deed and for it to be delivered to the Grantee for it to be valid. Grantor's signatures usually must be notarized and in some rare cases separate witnesses must also witness the Grantor signing.
  • Prepared By. This section lets the world know who prepared the quit claim deed. Generally this is the Grantor or an attorney.
