A quit claim deed is usually filed when someone is giving up their interest in a property. It is commonly used in divorce, when one spouse gives up his right, title and interest to the property to the other spouse.
Procure your state's quitclaim deed form.
In the blanks provided, fill out the grantee and the grantors' names and current addresses.
Fill out the legal description of the property. You can get the legal description from your original deed or from the property appraiser's office. There should also be a place to include the address of the property.
Sign and notarize the deed. Some deeds only require one or two witnesses, while some deeds require a notary stamp, depending on which state you are in.
Record the deed at your county's recording office. You will have to pay documentary stamps on the deed and recording fees. Documentary stamps and recording fees vary depending on your county or state.
