Deed forms are the essential legal document used to transfer real property. Among the words pertinent to a deed are property, grant, assign, warrant, and convey. Just as professions each have their own language, so do business transactions. Real estate is just another word for property, and it has its own language as well. Buyers and sellers become grantors and grantees. Each property transaction requires a real estate deed document.
Lets take a look at the types of such documents that you might encounter in a real estate transaction. These are all forms of real estate deeds. The choice of the proper document depends on the type of real estate transaction.
If a family member wants to transfer property to another member of the family, a gift deed might be needed. This assures the grantee that the property is his or hers even if no money has exchanged hands.
Quitclaim deeds are another type. It is sometimes mistakenly called a quick claim deed. Specifically designed to convey any interest that the grantor might have in the property, quitclaim deeds are often used when a couple divorces and one party wants to deed the property to the other partner. In a divorce, one spouse sells the property and the other spouse signs a quit claim deed so that the buyer never has to worry about a dispute that emerges after the divorce is final. A quitclaim deed exactly what it sounds like. It allows a potential grantor to assure the grantee that he or she has quits any claim on the property. The operative words of conveyance are along the lines of "convey and quit claim".
