A quitclaim deed is a document that transfers the ownership of real estate from the current owner to a new owner. Usually, deeds contain some type of guaranties, especially as to the validity of the seller's ownership rights to the property. This particular type of deed does not contain any guaranties or covenants as to the validity of the title to the property. This deed merely transfers whatever interest the original owner had, if any, to the new owner. Typically, these deeds are used for inter-family property conveyances. This document can be useful for individuals or entities that want to transfer title to property without providing any guaranties.
