Quitclaim Deed

Templates and Forms

Free form. A quitclaim deed is sometimes called a quick claim deed or quickclaim deed. It is used when a person who might have a claim to real estate (the grantor) transfers any and all all ownership rights to the grantee. It can be used in the sale or gift of real estate, but it is frequently used in divorces when one spouse gives up any and all community property rights to the property, or in probate when an heir gives up any and all inheritance rights.

Use the RTF (word processing format) if you need to make changes to the form before filling it out, such as adding additional room for legal description, additional names of signatories, or additional details. Be aware that changing the language on some forms may affect their validity and enforceability.


These forms have been adapted from California statutes and highly-regarded practice guides to fit common situations. The law librarians have attempted to provide instructions, definitions, and examples to assist non-lawyers in understanding the purpose of the form, and what type of information to include when filling it out.

However, only lawyers (attorneys) can advise you of the correct forms for your particular situation, and what specific information to include on your forms.

It is your responsibility to determine whether this form is suited to your needs. If you have questions about what form to use, or how to fill them out, visit your local law library to do your own legal research, or consult a lawyer.
