Colorado Quit Claim Deed

Properly executed quitclaim deed documents in the state of Colorado must conform to specific statutory requirements.

Content:
Valid quitclaim deeds require the name, address, and county of both the grantor and the grantee; the amount of consideration paid for the real property (usually money); a formal legal description and address for the parcel; the assessor's ID number if available; date of execution; and an acknowledged signature of the grantor. See C.R.S. 38-30-113, 114, 116; C.R.S. 38-35-122. In addition, the language in the statutory form should be modified so that "quitclaim" replaces "convey" and "warrant title to the same" is omitted.

Recording:
C.R.S. 38-35-109 governs recording quitclaim deeds in Colorado. After the deed is executed, record it in the office of the county clerk where the land is situated. This preserves the continuous chain of title and allows future prospective owners to review the property's ownership history. Colorado adheres to a "race-notice" recording statute. This means that if a transfer of real property ownership is signed and acknowledged but not entered into the public record by recording, and the original grantor reconveys the same property to another bona fide grantee (someone who purchases the parcel for value, usually money), who then records the quit claim deed, the later grantee generally retains the rights to the property. In short, record the quit claim deed as soon as possible to protect the rights of all parties.

Diana L. said: Easy to use but need to go through the courthouse to do what I need to do.

Reply from Staff: Thank you!


James J. said: The form itself was very good and easy to use. The only problem I had was the Sample they provided. Using a different name in every spot doesnt help determine what goes where. Using "Theodore Rockafeller" as Lien Claimant in one spot and Jebediah Finklestein in another then Harvey Johnson in the last spot is confusing if you really need a helpful sample.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for your feedback James. We will have staff review the completed example to see if we can make it more helpful. Have a great day!

David M. said: Extremely easy to use. The sample completed document was very helpful. I really appreciated not having to spend a few hundred dollars for a lawyer to generate a document that I can produce myself for a small fraction of the cost.
