Popular - A Quitclaim Deed is used to transfer property from the seller (called the "grantor" on the deed) to the buyer (called the "grantee" on the deed) without any warranties that he or she actually owns the property involved. Any transfers of real estate must be in writing. This type of Quitclaim Deed is intended to be used when the seller is merely selling whatever interest she or he may have in the property. By using a Quitclaim Deed, a seller is not, in any way, guaranteeing that she or he actually owns any interest in the property. This type of Deed may be used to settle any claims that a person may have to a piece of real estate, to settle disputes over property, or to transfer property between co-owners. For this deed form to be recorded, it must be properly notarized.
