Idaho Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Idaho quitclaim deed, unlike the warranty deed, conveys property from a seller to a buyer or grantor to a grantee, without a warranty or guarantee as to whether the grantor has the authority to sell the property or has clean title to the property. Generally speaking, this type of deed is preferred in informal arrangements, such as with a close family member. If this is not the case, you may be receiving a deed that conveys all or nothing. That is why it is important to go to the local recorder’s office to do a complete title search to determine what rights the grantor has to sell and whether there are any other claims against the property.

Recording – The quitclaim deed must be filed at the County Recorder’s Office (See County List) in the jurisdiction of the real estate.

Specific Language (§ 55-612) – The word “Grant” should not appear in a quitclaim deed in Idaho as it presents to the Grantee that a guarantee is implied in the conveyance.

Signing (§ 55-805) – A quitclaim deed must be signed with the Grantor(s) in front of a notary public.

How to Write

Step 1 – The three buttons below the image, on the right, will each give you the opportunity to download the Idaho quitclaim deed. Each button is labeled according to the file type available. There are three (3) choices will be available: PDF, ODT, and Word. Choose the appropriate file type to download then save it to your computer. When you have gathered the information required, open the file you downloaded with a program that may edit it or Print it so that you may type in the information required directly onto it.

Step 2 – The heading of this document will contain three areas. The column on the left (containing the titles “Prepared By” and “After Recording Return To”) must be filled out before submission. The blank space in the top right-hand part of the page is for the internal use of the Idaho County Clerk Office accepting this filing. Note the “Prepared By” section. Here, report the Name and Address of the party who physically fills in the information required by the State of Idaho. Also, note the area for the Address will have a specific place for the Street Address (“Address”), a specific place for the State (“State”), and a specific place for the Zip Code (“Zip Code”).

Step 3 – Next, just below the term “After Recording Return To,” document the Party and Address who shall act as the Mail Recipient for the returned materials of the filed document. When the Idaho County Clerk has finished processing the filing being submitted, it will send it to the Mail Recipient at the Mailing Address listed in this area. As with the previous section, there will be a specific place to report this information. List the Mail Recipient’s Identity (“Name”), the Mailing Address (“Address”), the State (“State”) and the Zip Code (“Zip Code”) the Idaho County Clerk must use when returning the filed quit claim.

Step 4 – The body of the form will begin with a report on the County where the Property Claim being conveyed with this document is geographically located. Report this County on the space below the words “State of Idaho.”

Step 5 – The paragraph beginning with “Know All Men…” will contain two blank spaces following the term “…sum of.” Here, the Consideration, typically a sum of money, must be reported twice. First, it must be spelled out in words then, in the parentheses, filled in as a number.

Step 6 – Later in this statement, the blank space adjacent to the term “…forever quitclaims to” requires the Full Name of the Grantee receiving the conveyance of interest as a result of payment to be entered. Similarly, further definition to the Grantee must be solidified by entering the word “Grantee” on the blank space following where you have entered the Grantee Name.

Step 7 – The next step will be to deliver the Grantee’s Residential Address. This form will split this information across several spaces. The first space to the right of the term “residing at” must have the Grantee Street Address documented. The next three blank spaces will each follow a specific Address term: “County of,” “City of,” and “State of.” Each line must contain one item entered into its respective space: the Grantee’s Residential County, the Grantee’s Residential City, and the Grantee’s Residential State.

Step 8 – Now that we have documented who is filling out this form, where the filed document must be returned, the Consideration delivered by the Grantee in exchange for the Grantor’s release of Interest in the Property, the Identity of the Grantee, and the Residential Address of the Grantee, it will be time to solidify certain facts regarding the Property this document focuses on. First, on the space adjacent to the term “situated in,” report the County where the Property to be defined here is located.

Step 9 – The next section of this document will be composed of three blank lines and is located above the words “Insert Legal Description Here or Attach and Insert.” This must contain the Legal Description as it appears on the record books (this may be found on the actual Property Deed) and the Address of the Property, and a Description of the Interest in the Property being conveyed. If you are entering this information using a typewriter and there is not enough room, you may document the required information of this section on a separate document then attach it to this form currently being tended to.

Step 10 – The Grantor, releasing his or her Claim, must then Sign the form in the presence of a Notary Public (this must be a notarized document). All Grantors conveying interest through this conveyance must provide his or her Signature on the Signature Line designated by the label “Grantor’s Signature. The line below this will be designated with the label “Grantor’s Name” and requires the Grantor to Type or Print his or her Full Name. This must be followed by the Complete Address of the Signature Party. Note there will be a separate line designated for the “Address” then one designated for the “City, State & Zip.” There will be enough room for two Grantors to provide this and there is no actual limit to the number of Grantors that may be defined here. Each Grantor that participates in the conveyance of property claim defined by this paperwork should Sign this document then provide his or her Printed Name and Address in the presence of a Notary.

Step 11 – The last area of this page is reserved for the purposes of Notarizing this document as required. Here, the Notary Public will confirm several items: the relevant County, the Parties appearing before the Notary Public, and the Date of the Grantor Signing. This will be followed by the Notary Public ID Number, the Notary Public Commission Expiration Date, and the Notary Seal.

Step 12 – The final part of this process will be to locate and contact the Idaho County Clerk for the County or District where the Property is physically located. Each Idaho County will have its own process for this paperwork. For instance, in some cases, you will be required to submit this document and its paperwork for filing directly to the Idaho County Clerk while in other counties, you will have to submit it to the Office of the Recorder (typically in the Idaho County Clerk Office of that County). Additionally, the Filing Fee and applicable Fees may vary from County to County. Make sure to obtain the submission Guidelines and Fee set forth by the Idaho County Clerk for the jurisdiction where the Property is located.
