For a quit claim deed form to be valid in Alabama, it must meet specific statutory requirements.
The conveyance must be in writing on paper or parchment, and signed or marked by the grantor or an authorized agent and must also include the name, address, and marital status of the grantor (Ala. Code 35-4-20 et al). If the grantor is married, but the property is only owned by the spouse transferring ownership, the grantor's signature alone is sufficient for a legal conveyance. However, both spouses must sign the document if the land conveyed includes designated homestead property, regardless of the other spouse's ownership status. Non-homestead transfers require a recital stating that the property conveyed is not the grantor's homestead. In addition, deeds must contain a complete legal description of the property; a reference to prior recording if available; the grantee's name, address, and vesting information; a statement identifying the name and address of the individual who prepared the deed (Ala. Code 35-4-110, 113); and a witness statement or acknowledgement by a notary or other individual authorized to take oaths. If the grantor can write, the acknowledgement is sufficient, but if the grantor cannot write, an additional witness is required.
NOTE: because Alabama quitclaim deeds offer no warranty of title, the warranty clause section of the deed should not include the words "grant," "bargain," or "sell," because they contain implied warranties (Ala. Code 35-4-271). Instead, it should read "quit claim and convey," "remise, release and quit claim," or other such language that clearly shows the grantor's intent to convey his or her interest in the real property, but nothing more.
By law, any document conveying ownership in real property must be recorded with the probate judge in the county wherein the land is situated (Ala. Code 35-4-50). Recording is important because it enters the transaction into the public record, which provides formal notice of the change of title, protects the most recent owner, and preserves the clear chain of title. If a conflict about ownership of property arises, a later owner who recorded a conveyance will triumph over an earlier owner with an unrecorded document. Moreover, a clear chain of title makes it easier to re-convey the property at a later time.
The statutes specifically state that there is no requirement to recite the actual consideration paid in the text of the deed (Ala. Code 35-4-34). However, as of August 1, 2012, Alabama enacted Ala. Act 2012-494. This requires disclosure of the actual purchase price of the property or the actual value of the transfer, using the Real Estate Sales Validation Form, in accordance with Ala. Code 40-22-1. No deed may be recorded without submitting the form and paying the associated tax.
Be aware that counties often require unique formatting, additional information, tax forms, or other documents before the quit claim deed may qualify for recording.

I was able to complete the Quitclaim Deed and have it notarized without too much difficulty however appurtanances thereto in did not come out the way I wanted. I wanted it to read thereto in the City and County of Denver. The space and wording could not be changed to allow this phrase.
EASY! My bank Notary was free and new Deed was processed the same day I filled out your form.

The problem that I had was there were no one that I could call to answer question on filling out the form
The example form was a big help..Thank you
Downloaded the Quit Claim Deed for and they automatically showed me to download another form to fill out to have my ex sign. Had both forms done in less than 2 hours and done have my divorce paperwork to the courthouse. If you havent ever filled out the forms then the instructions make it easy to do!
form was helpful so far no problems. Items were clear. seems borderline expensive for what it is but it did make things easier.
This was easy and straight forward. Now if the bureaucrats in Volusa County accept my submittal Ill be all set!
forms were great except for the ground water hazard disclosure. I am not sure if the correct form is included. I found the correct form on the county website. Other than that the quitclaim deed was easy to fill out!
A local atty wanted to charge $265.00 to prep and record a deed. I did it for under $50.00! Glad I found this site. Extremely easy, anyone can follow your directions.
I had a little trouble downloading the easement forms. Customer service explained to me that it was probably my adobe reader so I updated it for free from adobe and everything downloaded like a breeze. Thanks for all your help.
I needed a quit claim deed for my county and the process of obtaining one was simple. Thank you.
hapy with the forms no issues.
Easy to download and fill out . Good product.
The program is great But when you print out the finished product, there is too much space not used. It does not look professional.
Thanks everything was great!

The forms worked perfectly! They were easy to understand using the examples they gave and it was so easy to download! I will use this website again!
used the forms for a quit claim from ex husband they seem to have perfect
Best of a bad situation no one likes to have to deal with this at least the form was easy even if the reason was not.
Very easy to order just wish it would have come with more information as to how to full out correctly. Thank You
First I was given wrong information by the first representative at the title company so I have possibly purchased something I cannot use. (Not the fault of Quit Claim Deed Forms however more scenario information or details regarding the forms on the site would be helpful.) Second I used this site to purchase this form specifically for Polk County expecting it to be partially completed with the Polk County information. However I believe that it is simply the form that is required by Polk County. More clarification of what is being purchased is needed on your website. Thank you.
I was confused about the 4 areas of signature name capacity at the bottom just before the notary signs. I had to call to see if that needed to be filled out or whether I should have others present.
