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".
All you need to know is that any time you make a change in your real estate status, you need a real estate deed of one type or the other for the transaction to be valid. Deeds are needed even if you are not buying or selling property. If you add or delete a name from the title, you need a new deed. However, you cannot just delete a name from a deed without that persons permission. They have to agree to be removed from the deed, sign the deed, and have their signature notarized.
A release deed or a deed of reconveyance is held by a trustee under a deed of trust loan and when the loan is repaid, it releases (or conveys) the deed back to the grantor.
A special warranty deed is a variation on this type of deed and it only warrants what is specifically written in the deed. It is sometimes called a limited warranty deed and can be compared to a quitclaim deed. It is usually reserved for use by entities wishing to avoid the potential hassle of relying on a general warranty deed. It conveys and specially warrants certain details.
