In New York, interest to real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a quitclaim deed. Quitclaim deeds are statutory under NY Real Prop. Law Section 258 Statutory Form D.

Quitclaim deeds offer no warranties of title and provide the least amount of protection to the grantee. They do not guarantee that the grantor has good title or ownership of the property and only transfer whatever interest the grantor may have in the property at the time of execution. They are generally reserved for divorces and other transfers of property between family members.

Quitclaim deeds offer less assurance than bargain and sale deeds, which convey whatever interest the grantor holds at the time of execution, sometimes with the promise that the grantor "has not done or suffered anything whereby the said premises have been incumbered in any way whatever" (NY Real Prop. Law Section 258 (Statutory Form C)). Bargain and sale deeds without covenant against grantor do not guarantee that the property conveyed is without encumbrances made by the grantor, but they do imply that the grantor held or holds an interest in the property being conveyed.

A lawful quitclaim deed must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents, including the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status; the consideration given for the transfer; 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 York residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more unmarried persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy is expressly declared. In the case of married persons, a tenancy by entirety is presumed, unless a joint tenancy or tenancy in common is expressly declared (E.P.T. Law Sections 6-2.1, 6-2.2).

As with any conveyance of realty, a quitclaim deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel, including the section, block, lot, and unit numbers. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property.

Sign the deed in the presence of a notary public or other authorized official. Record the deed at the county clerk's office in the county where the property is located for a valid transfer. Contact the same office to confirm accepted forms of payment.

Most counties in New York require a recording page to accompany all documents for recording. This cover page is available on the local county clerk's website, and it factors into the total page count when calculating recording fees. Contact the county clerk's office to verify requirements.

In New York, the real estate transfer tax is due at the time of recording. File Form TP-584 (Combined Real Estate Transfer Tax Return) with the appropriate county clerk (TAX Law 31-D-1449-EE(2)(d)). Non-residents of New York State must also file an IT-266 Tax Form (Non-Resident Real Property Estimated Income Tax Payment Form) (TAX Law 22-663).

Pursuant to R.P.P. Law 9-333.3, a Real Property Transfer Report is required to accompany all conveyances, excluding deeds of oil and gas or mineral rights. Use Form RP-5217-NYC for real property transfers within the five boroughs of New York City, and use Form RP-5217 for real property transfers in all other counties. Contact the local county clerk's office to confirm the specific local requirements.

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.

It would be helpful if the numbers on the instruction sheet were on the form. I was confused on page two if the signatures were for witnesses or buyer (grantee).
I do like the form and will use it in the future.

Also page one Grantee's signature only has one line and if there are two buyers need another line.

My goal was to find the Covenant, Conditions, and Restrictions for my HOA. From what I can read, these documents should be attached to our Deed (single family, patio home in New Hanover County). I am not sure if I have a copy of my Deed. I would need to check my Safe Deposit Box.

Unfortunately, I was not successful at finding these documents from your Website.

If you can help me find them, I would appreciate that.

It is most common to obtain a copy of CC&Rs directly from the HOA. Alternatively, they are also usually a matter of public record recorded with the local recorder and you can obtain a copy there.

As promised, my forms were immediately ready for download. The forms were exactly what i wanted. I couldnt be happier and i cant even guess how much money i saved. They were even formatted to the exact font, spacing and margin used by my county. It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into the preparation of these documents. They are absolutely perfect. Check it out, you wont be disappointed and the price is much less than i expected.

It's too early for me to tell because I just uploaded the document today and it hasn't been recorded yet. However, I will say that the website is very user friendly so assuming that everything goes as planned, this is a great service.
