To validate an Oklahoma quitclaim deed between the parties involved, acknowledgment or recording is not necessary (Okla. Stat. 16-15). It is, however, essential to note that an unrecorded and un-acknowledged quitclaim deed will not be valid against third parties. In order to serve as constructive notice to later buyers, mortgagees, encumbrances, and creditors, a quitclaim deed must be acknowledged or proved, certified and recorded with the register of deeds in the appropriate county in Oklahoma. It will serve as constructive notice from the time it is filed for record (Okla. Stat. 16-16).
