In Colorado, a Mineral Quitclaim Deed is used to transfer oil, gas, and mineral rights from the grantor to the grantee. It is a form of property transfer, not a lease agreement (CO Rev Stat § 38-30-113).

Transfer Details: The deed includes the transfer of a variety of mineral rights, such as oil, gas, and other minerals, without exceptions or reservations. The grantor specifies the percentage of mineral rights the grantee receives.

Rights and Access: The grantee is granted rights to access the land for activities like mining, drilling, exploration, operation, and development of these minerals, including their storage, handling, transportation, and marketing.

No Title Warranty: The grantor quitclaims the mineral rights without any warranty of title, either express or implied, meaning the grantee accepts the title as it is, including any discrepancies (§ 38-30-116).

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 deed must include the name, address, and county of both the grantor and grantee, consideration paid, a formal legal description of the property, the assessor's ID number (if available), and an acknowledged signature of the grantor (C.R.S. 38-30-113, 114, 116; C.R.S. 38-35-122).

Recording Process: According to C.R.S. 38-35-109, after execution, the quitclaim deed must be recorded in the office of the county clerk where the land is situated. Colorado follows a "race-notice" recording statute, meaning the first bona fide grantee to record the deed generally retains the rights to the property.

Permanent Impact and Legal Advice: The use of a quitclaim deed can have lasting implications on property rights. It is advisable for individuals to seek legal counsel to fully understand the document's implications before executing it.

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.

Order Process: 5 Stars - very easy
Material Received: 2 Stars
Issues:
1. Printing- Document would not print in format displayed. Format would continually shrink to approx 2/3 size thus not useable for formal doc submission to County Records office.
2. Document Format- Data insertion fields (addresses) were not of correct size for data input. I needed a 4 line input space but was limited to only 3 lines. Also, Date field (year) was mis-oriented in-so-much that the 3rd digit (inputted) overlapped on 2nd digit (pre-printed) and also was of noticeably different font.
3. Useability- Hand-written input space provided (for Notary) was deficient in space and spacing. It was a challenge to utilize the space available to complete fully and maintain legibility.

Overall - the document worked marginally as advertised, I did need to re-write the entire document myself. It is a good concept but I'd recommend that Deeds company improve the downloaded forms for actual useability, readability, functionability.
regards,
Jim S

Once I was able to get my scanner working and provide good quality scans, the turnaround was quick and my documents were recorded and returned to me the same day with the Recorder's Stamp for download. Deeds.com staff was able to guide me to make sure my package was complete. Thank you!

I would make just two suggestions.
(1) Create and example showing multiple grantor(s) and
(2) In the same example, show where and estate is conveyed to two or more people.

It would help in knowing the correct format.

Not too hard to do, I did get it checked out by an attorney after I completed it just to be safe. He said it was fine, made no changes.

Had trouble filling in the forms not very user friendly. The text always had to be manipulated to look in the best place. Could not easily move existing text to look more professional with the text being inserted.
