What is a Quitclaim Deed?

A quitclaim deed is a legal instrument which is used to transfer interest in real property from one party known as a Grantor to another party known as Grantee. It is often mistakenly referred to as a quick claim deed. A quitclaim deed relieves the Grantor of any liability regarding the ownership of the property. Subsequently, the Grantor of a quitclaim deed is not liable to Grantee, if another party’s claim to the property is later discovered. A quitclaim deed does not guarantee that the Grantor has clear title to the property. It’s simply a relinquishment of any rights a Grantor may have in a property.
