Quitclaim deed documents in the state of Maine are governed by 33 M.R.S. 161, which states that "a deed of quitclaim of the usual form conveys the estate which the grantor has and can convey by a deed of any other form."

33 M.R.S. 162 provides that any deed conveying rights to land must be in writing and signed by the grantor or an authorized representative. 33 M.R.S. 201-A adds the additional obligations of a reference to the prior book, page, and/or document number of the deed wherein the grantor gained interest in the property; a complete legal description in metes and bounds or a specific reference to a previously recorded survey plan of the land; and a clear statement of any exceptions, reservations or negations of warranty. 33 M.R.S. 306, 456, and 775 combine to present the statutory form for a quitclaim deed without covenant, and to expand the instructions to include the name, address, municipality, county, state, and marital status of all grantors and grantees; the correct title for the document (Quitclaim Deed without Covenant); the appropriate language of conveyance; a release of rights recitation from the grantor's spouse, (if any); the execution date (when the quitclaim deed is signed); and the notary's acknowledgement of all signatures. 33 M.R.S. 651-A states that the signor's typed or printed name must appear beneath all signatures.

Recording:
Maine follows a "notice" recording statute, as codified in 33 M.R.S. 201, which relates that all recorded real estate documents take precedence over unrecorded instruments. The statute also contains the obligation to present the quitclaim deed for recordation in the county where the property is located. In general, recording the deed as soon as possible after executing it is an easy way to preserve the rights and interests of all parties to the transaction. In addition, entering the deed into the public record preserves the chain of title (ownership history) for the property and should simplify future sales of the land.

The deed is presently at the auditors office and will be recorded after approval from zoning board. As far as I know, everything is going along well. A self addressed envelope was left at recorder's office for return after recording is complete.

Deed.com is an amazing site. After calling many places and going on many websites to figure out what I needed to submit (most counties cannot help with questions and the place I needed to turn the documents into could not help either, they are not allowed to give legal advice) I came across Deeds.com. It has been so helpful and I was able to research what documents I needed. I purchased one document and after more research I realized I needed a different document. Deed.com refunded my first purchase. I then purchased an Affidavit of Death and a Deed for the county and state I needed them for. Both the example and guide were very helpful and I will be submitting my documents after I have them notarized. I give five stars

The process for receiving the quitclaim document worked well. I couldn't use the document. If I had been able to view the document before I had to pay for it, I would have known, but that isn't how your process works. However, that's the only snag I found. Otherwise the process for paying and downloading the document worked well. Thank you.

Thank you for your feedback Beverly. We certainly do not want you to pay for something you are unable to use. To that end we have canceled your order and refunded your payment. We do hope that you find something more suitable to your needs. Have a wonderful day.

tl;dr - Bookmarked and anticipating using this site for years to come.

My justification for rating 5/5

1. Provide intuitive method for requesting property records.

2. Cost for records *seems reasonable.

3. They clearly state that interested parties could gather these records at more affordable costs through the county (which was more confusing for an inexperienced person such as myself). I mean, I appreciate and respect this level of honesty.

*I didn't shop around too much because it was difficult for me to find other services that could deliver CA property records.
