Alfred Grenrock Said: I looked at many other Quit Claim Deed offered on the web some free and some not so free. I was very fortunate to come across QuitClaimDeed.com. The format for my quick claim deed had margin and spacing requirements that had to be met or an additional $25.00 fee would be required. QuitClaimDeed.com meet all the requirements was easy to download fill out and the printed form looked like a $100.00 law office document. Thank You.

Jim Gordon Said: I just used the form for my daughter to Quit Claim her house to me. In the process of getting the form notarized and witnessed we discovered that there is no place for the Grantor to sign so we just drew a line printed her name and had her sign above the line. Seems strange that this was lacking.
