Quitclaim Deeds Lawyer in Virginia
Quitclaim deeds are most often used to transfer property between family members, as gifts, placing personal property into a business entity (and vice versa), or in other special or unique circumstances.
Quitclaim deeds are often used in divorce, whereby one spouse terminates any interest in the jointly owned marital home, thereby granting the receiving spouse full rights to the property. For example, when one spouse acquires the marital home in a divorce settlement, the other spouse could execute a quitclaim deed eliminating their interest in the property and transferring the entire claim to the other spouse quickly and inexpensively.
A quitclaim deed must be filed with the state of Virginia to be effective. If the quitclaim deed is not filed with the state, it won’t hold up to any future claims made on the property in question.
