A quitclaim deed should list the names of all grantors and grantees involved in the conveyance (MRS 59.310.1). The grantor to a quitclaim deed in Missouri must sign and acknowledge it before presenting it to the county recorder. In the City of St. Louis, both the grantor and grantee must sign the real estate document. A recorder of deeds in Missouri can refuse a quit claim deed if it does not contain the grantee's mailing address or a legal description of the real property (MRS 59.330). Any signors to the document must have their name typed beneath their signature. The Missouri Revised Statutes, The Recorders Association of Missouri, and the Missouri section of this website list recording requirements in more detail.
A quitclaim deed in writing, certified, and properly recorded will provide notice to all persons of the contents of the instrument. All subsequent purchasers and mortgagees shall be deemed to purchase with notice (MRS 442.390). An unrecorded quit claim deed in writing will be valid between the parties to it and those that have actual notice of it (442.400). Notice is not provided until recordation occurs.
