Form of the Alabama Quitclaim Deed:
According to Ala. Code 35-4-20, a quitclaim deed must be on a tangible medium, such as paper or parchment. While traditionally handwritten, modern practice includes typed or computer-generated documents, provided they are physically printed.

Signatory Requirements:
The deed must be signed or marked by the grantor or an authorized agent, as required by Ala. Code 35-4-20.

Grantor Information:
Essential details like the grantor's name, address, and marital status must be clearly stated (Ala. Code 35-4-20).

Marriage Considerations:
For properties owned individually by one spouse, only that spouse's signature is necessary. However, if the property is a designated homestead, both spouses must sign, as mandated by Ala. Code 35-4-20.

Homestead and Non-Homestead Provisions:
Transfers of non-homestead properties need a statement clarifying that the property is not the grantor's homestead.

Detailed Property Description:
A full legal description of the property, including references to prior recordings, is required as per Ala. Code 35-4-20.

Grantee Details:
The deed should include the grantee’s name, address, and vesting information.

Deed Preparer Information:
The individual preparing the deed must be identified, including their name and address, as required under Ala. Code 35-4-110 and 35-4-113.

Witness and Acknowledgment:
Notarization or a witness statement is required. If the grantor cannot write, an additional witness is necessary (Ala. Code 35-4-20).

Avoid Implied Warranties:
Due to the nature of quitclaim deeds, words implying warranties like "grant," "bargain," or "sell" should be avoided. Instead, use phrases like "quit claim and convey" or "remise, release, and quit claim" to indicate the transfer of interest without any warranties (Ala. Code 35-4-271).

Recording Requirements:

Mandatory Recording with Probate Judge:
The deed must be recorded with the probate judge in the county where the property is located to ensure legal recognition of the ownership transfer (Ala. Code 35-4-50).

Benefits of Recording:
Recording the deed provides public notice of the change in ownership, protects the rights of the current owner, and maintains an unambiguous chain of title.

Priority in Disputes:
In property ownership disputes, a later owner who has recorded their conveyance generally has legal precedence over an earlier owner with an unrecorded document (Ala. Code 35-4-50).

Consideration Disclosure:

Deed Consideration Clause:
Ala. Code 35-4-34 specifies that the actual consideration (the purchase price or value) does not need to be included in the deed's text.

Real Estate Sales Validation Form Requirement:
Since Ala. Act 2012-494, the actual purchase price or value of the property transfer must be disclosed using the Real Estate Sales Validation Form, in accordance with Ala. Code 40-22-1. The deed cannot be recorded without submitting this form and paying the necessary tax.

County-Specific Stipulations:
Individual counties in Alabama might have specific requirements for quitclaim deeds, including unique formatting, additional information, tax forms, or other documents. Always check with local authorities to ensure full compliance before attempting to record your quitclaim deed.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Was warned by attorney that forms from internet have lots of mistakes. But after looking all over, took a chance on here. So far, I am satisfied, and actually happy that I got something that (I believe) meets my state and local requirements. Haven't filed the deed yet, or had to put it into effect, but being able to pick the local area, and have the relevant state law listed on the deed, gives me confidence. Also, got the whole package of possibly relevant forms, and a very good guide how to prep the deed with a sample completed deed - greatly appreciated!

This was such an easy transaction and quicker than if I went to the recording office. During this time of COVID19 and not being able to record documents in person it helped us to get what we needed and quickly.

I am mostly satisfied with my Deeds.Com experience. Not sure if you can do anything about this, but since it is fairly common, I thought the Quit Claim Form would have a section specifically for adding spouse to a deed.

I recommend you add a box "Add another document or package." The way it is now confused me, so I uploaded the same document two more times, thinking the upload failed the first two times.
