A Connecticut quit claim deed is used to transfer real estate when the grantor (seller) gives any and all ownership interest to the grantee (buyer) without any guarantees about other owners of the property. The only thing that seller (grantor) is transferring is his or her claim to the property, if any. This type of deed is used for transfers between family members. As in all cases, it is important that the purchaser does a thorough title search to make sure he or she knows the history behind the property and previous owners. This will allow the grantee to know what exactly is being purchased and if there are any other people who may have a claim to the property.
