In California, a Mineral Quitclaim Deed (as per Civil Code Sections 1092, 1104-1107, 1113; Government Code Sections 27279-27297.7, 27320-27337) is used for transferring oil, gas, and mineral rights from the grantor to the grantee. It is a transfer of ownership, NOT A LEASE, and does not include exceptions or reservations.

Transfer Details: The deed transfers all kinds of mineral rights, including oil and gas. The grantor has the discretion to specify the percentage of mineral rights the grantee will receive.

Rights Conferred: This deed gives the grantee rights to access the land for mining, drilling, exploration, operation, development, storage, handling, transportation, and marketing of these minerals.

No Title Warranty: The grantor transfers mineral rights without any warranty of title, either express or implied, meaning the grantee accepts the title as it is, with all its potential discrepancies.

Uses: Mineral deeds with quitclaim are often used in situations where the grantor wants to quickly release any interest they might have in mineral rights, such as in settling estates, resolving disputes, clearing up uncertainties about ownership in a title's history or when mineral rights have previously been severed or fragmented from surface rights and cloud a title, making it difficult to transfer property. Resolution often involves the holder(s) of the mineral rights, quit-claiming any rights he/she/they have or might have in the subject property.

Legal Requirements and Recording: The quitclaim deed must be in writing and include the names and addresses of all parties involved, as required by Government Code Sections 27324, 27321.5, 27361.6, and 27288.1. It must be recorded by the County Recorder in the county where the property is located (Civil Code Section 1169) and adhere to California's "race-notice" recording statute (Civil Code Sections 1213-1214).

Formatting and Execution Requirements: The deed must follow specific formatting guidelines (Government Code Section 27361.6) and be executed before two disinterested witnesses. The names of all parties must be legibly signed or printed near the signature (Government Code Sections 27280.5, 27361.6).

Language and Other Considerations: Quitclaim deeds not in English are not suitable for recording (Government Code Section 27293). The deed should also include a complete legal description of the property and the vesting choice of the grantee.

Implications: The use of a quitclaim deed can have a permanent effect on property rights. It is advisable to consult a legal professional to fully understand the implications of executing such a document.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.

This product makes it so much easier to understand and file forms that you might have to pay an attorney to do. All Counties have their own way of submitting forms and with Deeds you have the correct format.

So far so good. Looks nice but a more condensed version, when the recorder charges by the page, should be offered.

So far the service seems good, simple to use. One criticism, the password change feature should require the user to re-enter their old password, new password, and re-enter the new password to make sure there is no typos. Thanks.

This was so easy and seemless. I wish I had found deeds.com for eRecording sooner! I submitted my documents from the comfort of my office, they were great about communicating in a timely manner with updates. The next day I had copies of my recorded documents! I would highly recommend deeds.com!

Easy access to forms saving lots of time researching reqmts from a State/Municipal Govt website. I saved 400-500 in lawyer fees but getting these forms, and coordinating with the Property recorders office in another state. Will use you again.
