A quitclaim deed in Texas is recordable once it has been acknowledged, sworn to with a proper jurat, or proved according to law. The grantor to the quitclaim deed must sign and acknowledge the instrument. If the grantee's address is not included in the deed, the recording party may face penalty fees. There may also be formatting standards and specific guidelines as to the type of information that should be included in a quitclaim deed presented for recording in Texas.
An unrecorded quitclaim deed is binding only to the parties involved, the party's heirs, and a subsequent purchaser who does not pay a valuable consideration or who has notice of the instrument (Tex. Prop. Code Ann. 13.001 b). The recording act in Texas states that any conveyance or interest in real property (i.e. a quitclaim deed) is void against creditors and subsequent purchasers for valuable consideration without notice unless the instrument has been acknowledged, sworn to, or proved and filed for record according to law. A quitclaim deed that is properly recorded in the proper county in Texas will provide notice to the public of the existence of the instrument and will also be subject to public inspection (Tex. Prop. Code Ann. 13.002).
