In New Jersey, real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a quitclaim deed.

Quitclaim deeds are identifiable by the word "release" in the granting clause, and they function to terminate whatever interest the grantor holds at the time of the transfer (N.J.S.A. 46:5-2). In New Jersey, conveyances in which the grantor remises, releases, or quitclaims interest in real property to the grantee without reservations "pass all the estate which the grantor could lawfully convey by deed of bargain and sale" (N.J.S.A. 46:5-3). This means that a quitclaim deed transfers the same quality of title as a bargain and sale deed. Quitclaim deeds differ from bargain and sale deeds, however, in that they do not include a promise from the grantor that he or she has not encumbered the property (N.J.S.A. 46:4-6).

A lawful quitclaim 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 New Jersey residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A conveyance to two or more unmarried persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless otherwise stated. A conveyance to a married couple creates a tenancy by entirety, unless otherwise stated (N.J.S.A. 46:3-17, 46:3-17.3).

As with any conveyance of realty, a quitclaim deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. The deed should 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. For a valid transfer, record the deed at the recording office in the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to confirm accepted forms of payment.

Deeds transferring new construction as the term is defined in N.J.S.A. 46:15-5(1)(g) should contain the words "NEW CONSTRUCTION" in all caps on the first page (N.J.S.A. 46:15-6(2)(c)).

If the conveyance is exempt from transfer taxes, explain why on the face of the deed. See N.J.S.A. 46:15-10 for transfer tax exemptions. Include a completed Affidavit of Consideration with deeds claiming exemption or partial exemption.

Record a Gross Income Tax Form (GIT/REP) with a deed when transferring real property in New Jersey. Ask the local assessor or recording office for help in choosing the correct version of the GIT/REP.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

Forms are good. But need to be able to fill in information and blanks so these can be filed. Disappointed.

Reply from Staff

Thank you for your feedback. The forms are fill in the blank, Adobe PDFs. As is noted on the site, make sure you download the documents to your computer and open them with Adobe. Sounds like you may be trying to complete them online in your browser.

Outstanding. There is nothing worse than finding the correct forms or having to hire an atty to do what most people can do on their own. I cant speak for all but these forms are fairly easy. The addition of guides and supplement forms are excellent. I just saved quite a bit of money with your site. Thanks

I needed a quitclaim deed to transfer ownership of a home. An attorney wanted $400.00 to file the deed. I downloaded a blank deed for my area from deeds.com. I received it instantly. (Small fee) it came with instructions and a template. I filled it out and submitted it to the County Clerks office.it was simple and I saved a lot of money. There may be other forms you need, check with whoever you are submitting the deed.
You'll have additional fees, but that is up to the municipality in which you reside. It will be helpful if you have the latest deed on file.
It was much easier than I thought. This is an easy website to navigate through and it is 100% legitimate. I recommend Deeds.com.
