Rhode Island, like many New England states, does not have a county government system. Real estate deeds are recorded with the town or city clerk where the property is located. The grantor is required to sign the quitclaim deed, along with the notary public. Both signatures must have corresponding names printed beneath them (34-11-1.1). The grantee's address must also be included in the quitclaim deed. Failure to comply does not invalidate the recording, but the city or town clerk can refuse the quitclaim deed if this requirement is not met (34-11-1.2)
According to Title 34-11-1 of the Rhode Island General Laws, any conveyance, including a quitclaim deed, is required to be in writing and recorded; however, if it is delivered as between the parties and their heirs or those having notice of it, it is valid, binding, and sufficient to pass title even though it is not acknowledged or recorded. If a quitclaim deed is signed and delivered by the grantor, it will convey to the grantee all that the grantor is lawfully able to convey without any other act or ceremony. Once recorded and acknowledged, it is operative against third parties (34-11-4). Recording a quitclaim deed provides constructive notice of the contents (34-13-2).

Review: 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.
