Real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a grant deed. Nebraska's statutory grant deed includes a covenant that the grantor has good title to the estate in quantity and quality which he purports to convey (Neb. Rev. Stat. 76-206).

A lawful grant deed includes the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status, and the grantee's full name, mailing address, marital status, and vesting. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership.

For Nebraska residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common and joint tenancy. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy is expressly stated (Neb. Rev. Stat. 76-118).

As with any conveyance of realty, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, detail any restrictions associated with the property, and indicate whether the property is a homestead. The deed must meet all state and local standards of form and content for recorded documents.

Sign the deed in the presence of a notary public or other authorized official. Note that if the owner is married, both spouses must sign the form to release any potential marital rights to the land. For a valid transfer, file the deed at the recording office in the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to confirm accepted forms of payment.

All transfers of real property are subject to a documentary stamp tax. The tax is due at the time of recording. If the transfer is exempt under Neb. Rev. Stat. 76-902, note the reason on the face of the deed and fill out a certificate of exemption.

The basic setup was fine but, I need to review the document in its entirety for accuracy which I have yet to do so. So far so good. The monthly fee is more than I need for right now.

Came with all the paperwork that I needed plus a lot more paperwork than what I needed. Covered all the bases! The instructions were a big help. Easy fill in the blanks. Had no problem filing the paperwork afterword at the County Clerks office. Definitely worth the $20.

My county clerks office referred me to this website and I am so glad she did. This site is very easy to use, they do NOT try to sell you other things you don't need (or want) nor do they make you sign up for anything. Pick what you need and whalaa - there for you in seconds.
Thank you so much - will use again should the need arise.

I am mostly satisfied with my Deeds.Com experience. Not sure if you can do anything about this, but since it is fairly common, I thought the Quit Claim Form would have a section specifically for adding spouse to a deed.
