Pennsylvania Quit Claim Deed

A quit claim deed is a legal document in Pennsylvania used to release interest in land. When the words “release and quit claim” are used in the words of conveyance in a Pennsylvania quit claim deed, they are construed to set forth that the grantor is releasing and quitclaiming to the grantee, his heirs, and assigns all the right, title, interest, property, claim, and demand in the premises released (or intended to be released) so that neither the grantor nor his heirs or personal representatives shall at any time thereafter have claim, challenge or demand the said lands and premises in any matter. When property in Pennsylvania is released or quitclaimed, the absence of the words “grant and convey” means that the grantor does not warrant that the estate was free from encumbrances at the time of conveyance. (Unofficial Purdon’s Statutes from West 21 P.S. § 1)

Purdon’s Pennsylvania Statutes is an unofficial consolidation of the statutes of Pennsylvania. An alternate publication, Purdon’s Statutes Annotated includes the complete text of the statutes. The consolidated statues available for viewing on the Pennsylvania General Assembly website are not full and complete; users are directed to Purdon’s Statutes online for the complete text, especially of Title 21: Deeds and Mortgages.
