Quitclaim Deeds Legal Forms Software


Easily create a Deed to transfer real estate ownership! Changing the owner’s name on a property requires either a Quitclaim Deed (the most common document), a Warranty Deed (to revise ownership guaranteeing clear title without liens), or a Survivorship Deed (to grant ownership of a property after the death of the current owner to the persons named). Get all three Deed documents in one easy-to-use software package from Standard Legal!

If you have the need to transfer title on a piece of real estate, then invariably you will need to create, execute and file a Deed.

A Deed is the document that transfers ownership in property from one living person or legal entity to another.

When closing an arms-length real estate sale (a transaction not between family members purchased at market rate), the buyer pays the seller who in turn provides the Deed to the buyer. The buyer then files the Deed with the recorder’s office or real estate office in the county where the property is located to complete the transaction.

If a person wishes to transfer property to a spouse, child, friend, family member, etc. without creating and signing a real estate contract or for an amount far under market value, the family can simply prepare a Deed. The family member(s) who will hold ownership in the property are named in the Deed, and then the Deed is executed and filed.

[IMPORTANT NOTE: Only a LIVING PERSON or a Trust can transfer ownership of a property to another using a Quitclaim Deed. A new Deed must be signed by the currently listed property owner to initiate ownership transfer. So property owned by a deceased person CANNOT be transferred to a new owner using a Deed.]

A Deed also may be commonly utilized:

– in Divorce situations, any change in ownership for real estate held within the marriage may necessitate the use of a Quitclaim Deed. If one person is going to keep the home, the other person will need to “quit claim” — give up — their portion of the home.

– if a Living Trust or other estate-planning tool (besides a Last Will & Testament,) is prepared, persons must transfer ownership of the real estate into the Trust; to make such a transfer requires the use of a Quitclaim Deed.







Within Standard Legal’s Quitclaim Deeds legal forms software package are three types of commonly used deed types:

This deed can be used when transferring or conveying property from one party to another without representation or warranties. This type of deed is generally used in “AS-IS” sales situations, or for transfers among family members, Trusts, etc., where an arms-length real estate sale does not take place.

This deed is the one most commonly used for general real estate transactions. This deed “warrants” that the property is being transferred with clear title (i.e. without encumbrances except those that are filed on record). Most arms-length sales of residential property utilize a warranty deed.

Deeds created “with survivorship” mean that if one of the named owners dies, the other listed owner(s) retains full title to the property. (Such a deed also permits one spouse who owns property in his or her name only to transfer that property to both spouses with survivorship.) Options to this structure include a Quitclaim Deed with Survivorship and a Warranty Deed with Survivorship.

Each of the Warranty Deed and Quitclaim Deed options listed above are available for the following marital status situations:

– Married couple transferring property to another married couple;

– Married couple transferring property to a single individual;

– Single individual transferring property to a married couple;

– Single individual transferring property to another single individual;

– A variety of forms that cover transfers to and from unmarried couples;

– And finally, a Quitclaim Deed that allows individuals or couples to transfer property into a Trust (or, conversely, from a Trust back to individuals or a married couple).

The deeds with Survivorship language are available for the following marital status situations:

– Married couple transferring property to another married couple;

– Single individual transferring property to a married couple;

– A variety of forms that cover transfers to and from unmarried couples.

The wide variety of options available from Standard Legal allows a person to quickly, easily and affordably create a Deed for the specific situation, with each Deed tailored to the writer’s marital status and the marital status of the others involved in the transaction.

    I was able to use the Quitclaim and Warranty Deed forms to transfer the title of my property with very minimal expense. The software is easy to use and saved me a great deal of money — especially instead of hiring a lawyer to do the same work. Thanks Standard Legal!

    I purchased the Quitclaim Deed software and using it has been great! It has helped me save quite a bit of money versus having a service provider handle on my behalf. Thanks!

  5. Sidney Morris, Edgartown MA

    Standard Legal was exactly what we were looking for: a no-nonsense path to a legal process with comprehensive instructions and a simple do-it-yourself document. We needed to add a family member to a property deed and we had been procrastinating for years, looking for an attorney who would treat us well without charging excessively. The Standard Legal Quitclaim Deed document gave us everything we were looking for at a reasonable cost. Thanks for a miraculous solution!
