Nebraska Quit Claim Deed

Quitclaim deed forms executed in Nebraska must be signed by the grantor and be acknowledged or proved and then recorded with the register of deeds in the county where the property is located (NRS 76-211). The names of each party to the quitclaim deed should be typed beneath signatures (NRS 23-1503.01). A quitclaim deed submitted for recording to a Nebraska register of deeds should include a return address and the title of the instrument (NRS 23-1510). In preparing a quitclaim deed, the consideration for the real property should be listed, as well as quitclaim covenants.

The act of recording a quitclaim deed in Nebraska places it in the public record and makes it valid as to all creditors and subsequent purchasers in good faith and without notice. A quitclaim deed is void to all creditors and subsequent purchasers without notice whose deeds, mortgages, or other instruments are recorded prior to the quitclaim deed. An unrecorded quitclaim deed, however, is valid between the parties to the conveyance (NRS 76-238). Nebraska Quit Claim Deed Forms Have Been Updated as Recently as Thursday August 9, 2018
