Real Estate Deeds

Minnesota Quitclaim Deed from Individual to Joint Tenants

Minnesota's real estate deeds are governed by Minn. Stat. 507, which contains the basic form and requirements for lawful conveyance of property. A quitclaim deed is used in Minnesota real estate transactions where the grantor agrees that "such instrument, duly executed, shall be a conveyance to the grantee, the grantee's heirs and assigns, of all right, title, and interest of the grantor in the premises described, but shall not extend to after acquired title, unless words expressing such intention be added." (507.07). In other words, a quitclaim deed generally transfers only the grantor's current interest, if any, in the property at the time of the deed's execution.

While properly completed statutory form may suffice in many situations, they leave the possibility for errors based on incorrect or missing information. To reduce confusion about the information needed for different real estate transactions, Minnesota suggests guidelines for uniform conveyancing forms, each with a specific purpose. See Minn. Stat. 507.09-507.14.
