When should I use a quit claim deed?

Due to the nature of a quit claim deed, it tends to be used for specific purposes when the transfer of title needs to be done quickly. Quit claim deeds are generally not used for normal sales of real estate between unknown parties. They are generally used for the following activities:

  • Transferring a property into a trust
  • Removing a spouse from a title during the divorce procedure
  • Adding a spouse to a title after marriage
  • Transferring property within a family; for example, from parent to child
