What is a quitclaim deed?
A quitclaim deed is a document that is used to transfer ownership of real estate from one party to another. With a quitclaim deed you are not making a warranty of title. A quitclaim deed is the fastest way to transfer property to a buyer. This type of deed only operates to convey the seller’s interest in the property to the buyer. It is often used to remove defects in title without the need to go to court. In short- a quitclaim deed is a simple mechanism that allows someone to convey whatever interest they have in the property.
