Also Know, is a quitclaim deed the same as a title? A quitclaim deed transfers title but makes no promises at all about the owner's title. A person who signs a quitclaim deed to “transfer” property he does not own results in no title at all being transferred since there is no actual ownership interest. The quitclaim deed only transfers the type of title you own.

One may also ask, do title companies prepare quit claim deeds?

If we are not closing an escrow regarding refinancing or selling your property, we cannot legally prepare documents for you. Only you or your attorney could prepare the documents. Title company employees and escrow company employees are not allowed to give legal advice in regard to preparing a quit claim deed.

Who prepares a quit claim deed?

The grantor provides the grantee with no warranties about the condition of the title. By accepting a quitclaim deed, the buyer assumes all the risks. Quitclaim deed preparation by a real estate lawyer assures all parties involved that the transfer is done legally.
