YORKVILLE AND OSWEGO QUIT CLAIM DEED ATTORNEY

A Quit Claim Deed Form is used when a party wants to remove or add a party to real estate title.  According to Legal Zoom, a Quit Claim Deed conveys a legal interest in real estate to a buyer.  Generally, a Warranty Deed will have the protection of insuring good title to the real estate property.  A Title Insurance Company is typically used with a Warranty Deed where title insurance is purchased.  Unlike a Warranty Deed, a Quit Claim Deed conveys a property interest to a buyer by only conveying the interest that a Seller has in the property.  Thus, a Quit Claim Deed does not guarantee good real estate title.

Today and multiple times in a week, we prepare Quit Claim Deeds for people.  Today, we prepared a Quit Claim Deed where we removed an ex-spouse from real estate title or otherwise known as a “Quit Claim Deed”.  Typically, the person transferring their interest in real estate is known as a “Grantor”.  A person or entity purchasing or being transferred an interest in real estate is known as a “Grantee”.  An improperly prepared Quit Claim Deed can result in a real estate title issue.
