In order to have a quitclaim deed admitted to record in Vermont, it should be signed by the party granting the real estate, acknowledged by the same, and recorded in the clerk's office in the town where the property is situated. Unlike many other states that employ a county recording system to record quitclaim deeds and other real property instruments, Vermont uses a town recording system. Vermont quitclaim deeds use traditional legal language to convey the grantor's interest in real property.
Unless a quitclaim deed is acknowledged and recorded in the appropriate town clerk's office in Vermont, it will not effectively hold lands against any person but the grantor (V.C.A. 342). Recording a Vermont quitclaim deed provides notice of its contents. If a later buyer is paying fair value for property, and a quitclaim deed related to that property has not been recorded, the buyer does not have notice of earlier conflicting interests. If the later buyer records the quitclaim deed first, that deed would have priority over later recordings.
