Alabama Quit Claim Deed

In the state of Alabama, quit claim deeds, as suggested by Alabama Code § 35-4-271, convey only the grantor’s rights in the property. They include no warranties of title. As a result, these deeds offer no protection for the grantee. There is, however, an implied good-faith presumption that the grantor is not aware of any other owners or conflicts over who holds the title. Therefore, if another person comes forward with a valid claim of ownership of the property, the grantor is not obligated to defend the grantee’s title.

Code: In all conveyances of estates in fee, the words "grant," "bargain," "sell" or either of them, must be construed, unless it otherwise clearly appears from the conveyance, an express covenant to the grantee, his heirs and assigns, that the grantor was seised of an indefeasible estate in fee simple, free from incumbrances done or suffered by the grantor, except the rents and services that are reserved; and also for quiet enjoyment against the grantor, his heirs and assigns, unless limited by the express words of such conveyance; and the grantee, his heirs, personal representatives, and assigns may, in any action, assign breaches, as if such covenants were expressly inserted.
