To be accepted for recording by a county clerk in Oregon, a quitclaim deed document needs to have an original signature from the grantor and from the person before whom acknowledgments are made. A mandatory statement for a conveyance of fee title to real property must be included in any quitclaim deed submitted for recording, the full text of which appears in the Oregon Revised Statutes 93.040. Further requirements, such as a legal description of the real property, first-page designations, and standard formatting are needed in order to record the quitclaim deed. These requirements may vary by county. For a complete list of requirements, visit the appropriate county page.
A quitclaim deed that is left unrecorded in Oregon is not valid against a subsequent good faith purchaser and for a valuable consideration of the same real property whose conveyance is first filed for record (93.640). Priority is given to the first document recorded. The only way to give constructive notice of an interest in real property in Oregon is to record the document that evidences such interest in the county where the property is located (93.643).
