All Fresno County specific forms listed below are included in your immediate download:
*Supplemental forms (forms other than the actual deed form) are made available as a courtesy with your order. Supplemental forms come directly from the state or local jurisdiction that requires them, we offer no support for the supplemental forms, we did not make them.
Quitclaim deeds in California are initially defined by Civ. Code, 1092, 1104-1107, 1113, and further in Gov. Code 27279-27297.7, 27320-27337.
Each document submitted for recording should have the title near the top of the first page (Gov. Code 27324). Include the name and address of the individual requesting recording as well as a name and return address for use after the quitclaim deed is recorded. Provide the name and address of the individual or entity to receive tax bills at the bottom of the first page. (Gov. Code 27321.5, 27361.6). In addition, every quit claim deed must contain the name and address of everyone with an ownership interest in the property. Be certain to present the names in exactly the same way they're found on the prior deed. If there are any unrecorded changes, provide the original and new names like this: Jane Doe, formerly known as Jane Smith. See Gov. Code 27288.1.
Any document which modifies, releases, or cancels the provisions of a previously recorded document shall state the recorder identification number or the book and page of the document being modified, released, or canceled. (Gov. Code 27361.6). Additionally, Gov. Code 27280.5 requires that the names of parties required to be indexed appearing in any instrument, paper, or notice presented for recordation should be legibly typed or printed near the signature. The names of all persons executing or witnessing a document shall be legibly signed or shall be typed or printed to the side of or below the signature.
While not specifically discussed in the statutes, a valid quit claim deed should also include, at minimum, a complete legal description of the property and the name, address, and vesting choice of the grantee.
Note that Gov. Code 27293 requires that quit claim deeds in languages other than English are not suitable for recording. Civ. Code 1169 states that quit claim deeds must be recorded by the County Recorder of the county in which the conveyed real estate is situated.
Civ. Code 1213-1214 discuss California's recording statute, which is classified as "race-notice." Basically, the first bona fide purchaser....will prevail over an earlier purchaser who failed to record the conveyance. So, despite Civ. Code 1217, which states that "an unrecorded instrument is valid as between the parties thereto and those who have notice thereof," just because the parties on the quit claim deed know about it, their knowledge does NOT constitute constructive notice to the public. Therefore, RECORD THE QUIT CLAIM DEED as soon as possible after executing it. This protects the interests of all parties.
Gov. Code 27361.6 formalizes some formatting requirements: The top right 2 " X 5" corner is reserved for the Recorder's use only. The top left 2 " X 3 " corner is reserved for the name of the person requesting recording and a return name and address. The title of the document must appear on the first page immediately below the space reserved for the Recorder.

Easy to follow instructions and having an example helped also.
Thanks! Very easy to download and use. Just what I needed. Off to get notorized and record at courthouse. Saved a bundle.
I can tell you more after the Kern County Recorder gets my documents. I wish you had a section just for transferring mineral rights. In looking at what I ordered, everything sdeemed clear and accurate. Who could ask for more, unless, of course, it was a section on mineral rights.
Thank you. It was really easy to down load and print out. Will tell my friends about your service.
Website is very easy to use. I took my quit claim deed to the recorder today and it was perfect. Made this process so much easier.
I was very impressed how simple the entire process was. Not only was I supplied the correct form for my State, I was able to download full, itemized instructions, as well as a sample-completed form (which made it super easy for me to use as my guideline). Overall, I give Deeds.com a 10+ for the form and a 20+ for the fortitude to think-ahead and attempt to dummy-assist their customers filling out legal forms that most of us are not familiar with. Thanks :)

Easy to use & allows you to make correction easy for less experienced. Thank you
The Quitclaim deed I filed was recorded by the Valley County ID Recorder as requested. The download was fine. The customer review required typing in the entire URL for QuitclaimDeed.com which was cumbersome.

The form worked. Santa Clara does wants the address of who to send the tax bill bill in the lower left corner of the first page. That was easy to add to the property description though.
Very helpful guide. I found I missed one letter in my name (appearing in two places). Is there any chance I can get another copy of the form?

Worked perfectly. Site is very user friendly. Forms and instructions clear and easy to follow.
It was helpful, but it should be a packet that includes all forms and not just one. That would be much more helpful than having to purchase sets separately.
Compared to other sites that offered generic state forms, your site has the county specific forms. Included was instructions with explanations, of which I found to be very helpful.
