Virginia Quit Claim Deed

A quit claim deed executed in Virginia is a legal document by which at least two parties are bound. This real estate document, according to the Real Property title in the Code of Virginia, is considered to include all the grantor’s estate, right, title, and interest of the land, unless other intentions are expressed (55-49). Further, the language of conveyance in a quit claim deed serves to release the grantor’s estate, right, title, or interest of the Virginia real estate to the grantee. A quit claim deed allows the grantor to “quit” his or her interest in the real property—without guaranteeing that the grantor has any interest in the property. Because of the nature of a quit claim deed in Virginia, when property that the grantor does not own at the time of execution, but will acquire prior to the execution, is described with reasonable clarity in the quit claim deed, this property will be conveyed in the deed. It will be as though the after-acquired title were vested in the grantor at the time the quit claim deed was created, which means that the grantee would be entitled to after-acquired title. If such property or title is not referred to or described with clarity in the quit claim deed, the grantee is not entitled to after-acquired title (Code of Virginia, 55-52).
