Obtain a copy of the quitclaim form from the Registry of Deeds office, where the property is located. Quitclaim forms are also available online and can be purchased at most office supply stores. Read the instructions included with the form in its entirety.

Fill out the form completely. Include the names and Social Security numbers of all parties involved, the date the deed was completed and the legal description of the property, including the complete address, city, state and Zip code. Write your name next to "recipient." Write the name of the person giving ownership rights to the property next to "grantor(s)."

Have the grantor sign the completed form and have it witnessed by a certified notary public. Most states do not consider quitclaim documents valid if not notarized.

Take the quitclaim deed to the Registry of Deed's office. The document will be recorded and filed by the county's clerk.
