Illinois Quit Claim Deed

The Illinois quitclaim deed is used to convey real estate in Illinois from one party to another. However, unlike a warranty deed, the seller ("grantor") is not required to warrant the title to the property. It is important that the buyer ("grantee") perform a complete property search to determine what right to the property they are purchasing.
