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.

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!

first time user. I have not used forms yet but getting them was very easy.
The order came in fine. The problem is we went to the Richmond County Tax Assessors Office and they told us for Right of Survivorship we needed to fill out a quit claim deed. Now I am told we need to file a warranty deed and not the quit claim deed. So we wasted our money on the Quit Claim Deed. But that is not your problem. Thanks
Great package it was nice to be able to get everything required for recording this quit claim in one place.
Great! Just the job.
Everything was fine. Thanks

great execution, document seemed to have extraneous stuff, would have preferred a one page document
I am very ploeased with the quality of the downloads. I thought I would lose my ability to pre-populate the forms after I downloaded them but nope; they worked just fine after saving them to my computer. The web site was easy to navigate and the instructions were clear. And the price was very reasonable.
This is amazing and very easy to use. Just what I needed and it saved me a lot of money for lawyer fees timeand travel. I highly recommend getting your quit claim forms here.
I read the instructions and with the sample form filled out, I was able to complete the form by filling it out online. I filed the form with Lake County, Indiana and it appears that everything is in order.
