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.

My sale is a land contract and it is complicated. We were thinking we'd have to get an attorney. Your site is very thorough and helpful. We will still have an attorney look over our final papers --and we are still waiting on my deed from the bank to finalize our input. Had several questions, but they seemed to be answered as I went along. The actual process of downloading and saving and having a link went very smoothly. Thank you.

The beneficiary deed was acceptable to the county clerk and my notarized official deed was mailed to me. The Missouri-based deed met with official approval so all is well in the land that time forgot.
