Kentucky Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Kentucky quitclaim deed is used to convey property in Kentucky. This type of deed does not provide any warranty as to title. That means that the seller does not provide a guarantee that the title to the property is clear and that there are no other interests in the property. The form is often used for close transactions, such as between family members or between a person and his or her trust. It is recommended that if you have any concerns about what rights to the property you are purchasing, then you, or a title organization, complete a title search of the property transfers going back at least 50 years.

Consideration Certificate – Must be attached to the Quit Claim Deed before recording at the County Clerk’s Office.

Signing (KRS 382.130) – All deeds must be signed in the presence of either two (2) subscribing witnesses or a notary public.

How to Write

Step 1 – Locate the buttons on the right labeled “PDF,” “ODT,” and “Word.” Select the document type you wish to work with then download it to your machine.

Step 2 – Once the document has been opened with an appropriate program, locate the first blank line at the top of the page (under “Prepared By”) and enter the Full Name of the individual filling in the information on this form. Follow this by reporting the Building Number, Street, and (if applicable) Unit Number where the Preparer may be found. Then enter the State and Zip Code where the Preparer is located on the last line of this section on the appropriately labeled blank spaces.

Step 3 – The next area to be attended to is the “After Recording Return To” area. Here, you may report to the Kentucky County Clerk where this paperwork may be returned once it has been filed successfully. You will need to report the Full Name and Complete Mailing Address of the Mail Recipient designated to receive such materials. Use the space designated as “Name” to report the Mail Recipient Name then the spaces designated as “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code” to report where the returned documents should be sent.

Step 4 – The subheading, “State of Kentucky,” requires the County Name where the Property is located reported on the blank space below it.

Step 5 – The blank spaces following the statement “That for and in consideration of the sum of” require the Price the Grantee must pay the Grantor to transfer his or her Claim or Interest in the Property. First, write this dollar amount using words, then enter it numerically in the parentheses.

Step 6 – The Grantor’s Name must then be written down on the blank space after “in hand paid to.” Solidify this title by entering the word “Grantor” on the next available space.

Step 7 – The Grantor’s Residential Street Address must then be reported following the term “residing at.” In addition, the Grantor’s County of Residence should be entered on the blank space after “County of.” The Grantor’s City of Residence should be entered on the space following the term “City of.” Lastly, the Grantor’s State of Residence is required following “State of.”

Step 8 – Next, the Identity of the person wishing to assume the right to claim the property in exchange for the submitted consideration must be documented as well as his or her Address. First, enter the Name of the Grantee after the term “hereby quitclaims to” and fill in the word “Grantee” on the next blank space.

Step 9 – The Address of the Grantee will be the next item to be submitted. Immediately after the term “residing at,” fill in the Grantee’s Residential Street Address. The Grantee’s County of Residence will need to be filled in on the blank space following the phrase “County of.” Next, the Grantee’s City must be entered on the blank space after the term “City of.” The last Grantee Address item will be his or her City of Residence. It must be entered on the space immediately following “City of.”

Step 10 – The next item of information that must be supplied will focus on the Property at the center of this filing. Report the County on the space immediately following the term “situated in” and before the word “County.” Below this a Legal Description of the Property must be supplied on the three blank lines provided. At the very least this should be the Address of the Property, the Property Tax ID Number, and the Legal Description written on the Deed to this Property. In cases where more room is required, attach the Legal Description and cite it in this area.

Step 11 – Locate the statement beginning with the words “Being the same property” then enter the exact Date the Grantor officially acquired the Property as listed on the record books.

Step 12 – The Grantor who is relinquishing an interest or claim to the Property must provide a Signature and several items. This may be done in one of the two Signature areas. The Grantor must provide his or her Signature on the first blank line (“Grantor’s Signature”) of this section. On the second blank space (“Grantor’s Name), the Grantor’s Name must be Printed or Typed. The “Address” line must bear the Street Address of the Grantor while the “City, State & Zip” must bear the balance of the Grantor’s Address. All Grantors required to relinquish any claim to the Property must provide these items. Thus if there are more than two, you may either add the appropriate lines to a new Signature column, in order to accommodate them, on this page or you may cite a Signature Sheet that is attached. Note: The Grantor Signing must take place in the presence of a Notary Public so it may be properly notarized.

Step 13 – The Notary Public will use the area beneath the Grantor Signature section to solidify the presence of the Grantor Signature on the exact Date it occurs. He or she will also provide the Notary ID Number, Commission Expiration Date, and the Notary Seal.

Step 14 – The final step will be to contact the Kentucky County Clerk for the jurisdiction the Property is located in. The Kentucky County Clerk will be able to inform you what the exact Filing Fee will be for that County along with any other requirements that must be fulfilled.
