No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

The quitclaim deed from individual to individual (Minnesota Conveyancing Blanks Form 10.3.1) is "sufficient to pass all the estate which the grantor could convey by deed of bargain and sale" in Minnesota (Minn. Stat. 507.06).

The deed conveys to the named grantee "all right, title, and interest of the grantor in the premises described," and does not extend to any after-acquired title ( 507.07). A quitclaim deed contains no warranties of title. For this reason, the quitclaim deed is often used in divorce or other transactions between family members.

Requirements of the form include the names and marital status of each grantor and grantee and a complete legal description of the property subject to transfer. All grantors or grantors' authorized representatives and joining spouses must sign the deed. A state deed tax, the amount of which is cited on the face of the deed is levied on the amount of consideration made for the transfer, and must be paid before the deed can be recorded.

Minnesota requires an electronic certificate of real estate value and a well disclosure statement for all sales of real property.

Ensure the deed meets document recording standards ( 507.093) before submitting to the recorder's office (or registrar's office, for Torrens land). Consult a lawyer with any questions related to quitclaim deeds or other real property transfers.

We were extremely satisfied with DEEDS.COM. We spent countless hours trying to contact the Queens County Clerk's Office without succeeding to get through. We needed to obtain an Executor's Deed to transfer the name on my beloved deceased father's property to my name as the executrix of his will. DEEDS.COM is the most efficient and painless way to get the forms you need. To top it all off, they send you, free of charge, additional forms that you may need for your filing purposes.
We are truly thankful for their kind assistance!!

I liked getting the forms but I was charged twice for some reason. I'm not sure what happened with that. Can you reimburse me? Thank you. Lanette

Thank you for your feedback Lanette. In review, it looks like your first payment was declined, second one was approved and processed. What you are seeing is one payment and a hold placed by your financial institution for the declined attempt. We are not sure why they do this but the hold usually falls off after a few day depending on their policy. If you have further questions about this you can contact your financial institution and they will explain. Have a great day.

This was an excellent service to amend a deed. It was a little frustrating at first, but well worth it, as they review your documents before submission to your "Recorder of Deeds" to make sure they are not rejected.

Would definitely use them again.
