A quitclaim deed of conveyance of lands is valid to subsequent creditors or purchasers for valuable consideration without notice, only after it is recorded in the office of the register of deeds in the county where the property is located. In the case of a subsequent purchaser of real estate (or a subsequent lien creditor on real estate) for valuable consideration without notice, the instrument evidencing the subsequent conveyance or lien must be filed for record in order for its holder to claim under section 30-7-10 of the South Carolina Code as a subsequent creditor or purchaser for value without notice, and the priority is determined by the time of filing for record.
