A Virginia quit claim deed is a legal document used to transfer property from one person (grantor) to another (grantee) based on the terms stated within the form. By executing this form, the grantor relinquishes any claims, interests, ownership, or rights they may have had in the property to the grantee.
It’s important for the grantee to note that while the grantor must have the legal authority to transfer the property, there is no specific language or proof required within the deed to establish this right.
Conducting a title search is advisable to verify the property’s ownership and rights.
To protect against future claims, the completed form must be filed with the Virginia Circuit Court Clerk in the county where the property is located.
Let’s navigate the process of filling out the Virginia Quit Claim Deed form together, step by step:
Fill in your full name in the space provided.
Write your complete residential address, including street, city, state, and zip code.
Enter the name of the person or entity to whom the document should be returned after it’s recorded.
Provide the full address where the recorded deed should be returned, including street, city, state, and zip code.
Leave this section blank, as it is reserved for the Recorder’s use.
Fill in the blank space for the date (day, month, and year) when the deed is being executed.
Enter the full name of the grantor(s) and the grantee(s) in the spaces provided.
State the consideration or amount of money being exchanged for the property in both words and numbers.
Fill in the grantor’s information: Enter the grantor’s full name, legal status (e.g., individual, corporation, etc.), residential address (including street, city, state, and zip code).
Fill in the grantee’s information: Enter the grantee’s full name, legal status, residential address (including street, city, state, and zip code).
Insert the county where the property is located: Write the name of the county where the property is situated.
Provide a detailed legal description of the property being transferred. Include all relevant information, such as lot number, block number, subdivision name, and county where the property is situated.
The grantor(s) must sign the deed and provide their printed name, address, city, state, and zip code.
Two witnesses should sign the deed and provide their signatures, printed names, addresses, city, state, and zip codes.
Leave this section blank. A notary public will complete this part after witnessing the grantor’s signature, including their own signature, commission expiration date, and the date the deed was signed.
Remember to review the completed deed carefully, ensuring accuracy before submission.
By accurately inputting the critical information and securing proper signatures, a Virginia quitclaim deed can successfully convey real estate interests between parties in concordance with state laws.
