A Deed is a legal document used to transfer real estate from one person or entity to another.
A Quitclaim Deed is used to allow a person or other
entity to relinquish, or "quit," all rights to a piece of property, but makes no warranty or claims about the property.
Alternatively, General Warranty Deeds and Special Warranty Deeds
are used to relinquish rights to real property as well as to specify the extent to which
the person or entity relinquishing the property, commonly referred to as the
Grantor(s), will defend the property on the Grantee(s) behalf against the
claims of others.
