Indiana Quitclaim Deed Form Content Requirements:
IC 32-17-2-2 defines a quitclaim deed as one which "passes all the estate that the grantor . . . may convey." The requirements for lawful execution of quitclaim deeds are covered in IC 32-21-1, 2, 13; 32-21-2-3; 36-2-11-15. First, any document conveying ownership in real property must be in writing and be signed by the grantor or an authorized agent. Enter the names and addresses of all grantors and grantees. Be sure that all names in the quitclaim deed are the same throughout the document. For example, if the grantor is Jonathan X. Smith, but he signs it Johnny Smith, the recorder's office might reject the deed. Include the type and amount of consideration (often money). Provide a complete legal description of the property. All signatures must be original and notarized, and the signor's name must be typed or printed just below the signature. In the space at the end, the quitclaim deed should contain a return address (usually the grantee) to receive the recorded deed and future tax bills, and the preparer's name and social security number statement.
IC 32-21-3-3 states that quitclaim deeds and other conveyances must be recorded after execution. These statutes identify formatting requirements:
* IC 36-2-11-14 requires an endorsement by the county auditor before the document may be accepted for recordation.
* IC 36-2-11-16.5 states that the quitclaim deed must be printed on white paper (20 lb. minimum weight), no larger than legal size (8" x 14"); the sheets must not be attached or connected; the print must be typed or computer-generated in permanent black ink, minimum 10 point type; all pages must be printed with minimum " margins all around, except for the first and last pages, which must contain minimum 2" margins on the top and bottom, with " on the sides.
Indiana follows a "race-notice" recording statute, discussed in IC 32-21-4-1. Quitclaim deeds must be recorded in the county where the real property is located. Upon acceptance by the county recorder, the instrument is stamped with the date and time of filing, and entered into the public record. This serves as constructive notice to interested parties and preserves the chain of title, making future conveyances of the land simpler. Stamping the time and date on the document allows it to be ranked in priority against additional claims on the same parcel. As explained in the statute, a recorded deed takes priority against future bona fide purchasers (buyer for value, usually money). For example, the grantor transfers ownership in the land to grantee A, who does not record the deed. The grantor then conveys the same land to grantee B, who does record the deed. By recording, grantee B moves up in priority and will, in many cases, retain ownership. In short, recording the quitclaim deed as soon as possible after execution is the best way to preserve the interests of all involved in the transaction.

Outstanding! Had a little trouble understanding the forms but the guide cleared it all up for me. Thank you for making this service available.
The forms were easy to find and print out. I chose to purchase the forms because I wanted to make sure I had the proper paperwork for Wayne County -- you can buy these types of documents at office supply stores but they arent always acceptable to the municipality in which you need to file the papers. Explanations and guidelines are very clear and I feel very confident that I will have no problems completing the form.
The forms are correct and the help forms are great examples. The only issue is that the deed form has a lot of white space in between sections and they are not editable. Other than that the forms are exactly what we needed. Thank you!
Thak you It was Great quick recieved and easy to fill in all the info I love it
Not really impressed with the quality of the document. Not professional looking for the $ outlay. These templates border on the same quality as the free templates that you can find online. Much room for improvement.
This Quitclaim Deed was so easy and quick it is great! I especially appreciated the simple instruction and sample filled out Deed. Thank you very much for this great product.
Hi. The form looked ok but I was expecting to see a filled-out example.
Outstanding! The whole process and the forms themselves was just perfect. I will definitely be back here if I ever need deed forms again. Thank You!
Easy to complete. Thanks.
Easy to fill out with good instructions and example
This was a perfect quick and effecient way of getting the form we needed. We filled it out printed it off took it to bank and had it noterized in a hours time-now ready to fax. Thanks so much. Ms Dulin
Liked the fact that the forms are specific to our area; however when saving them to my computer the file name shows-up as a long number which required me to rename them to something more understandable.
Great service and very easy to follow.
Great form needs more instructions however but aside from that is perfect solution for my needs.

It was simple & perfect!
Good warranty deed forms not exciting you know just legal forms!
Very easy to use. Will use it again.
served my purposes well closeda deal in 24 hrs Thanks
Much easier than others I have seen the instructions were perfect easy to understand.
I felt the access to the documents and the instructions were easily obtained and very easy to follow. I would rate the service higher but felt the price was to high for you to print the IPC code and the correct font for Porter county. I believe a fairer price would be 10-12 for the service since you have everything generated by the computer.
Very easy to use.
