Mississippi Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Mississippi quitclaim deed is used to transfer real property in Mississippi. Unlike the warranty deed, it does not have a guarantee as to the title. It would be prudent to have a thorough title search completed before proceeding with the sale if you are concerned about what it is you are purchasing. Once you have completed the deed and have had it signed and acknowledged by a notary public, you will need to file the deed with the chancery court land records department.

Different from other quit claim deeds around the USA, the State of Mississippi requires that the preparer, grantor, and grantee all place their phone numbers in the deed. The telephone must be their contact during typical business hours (per § 89-5-24).

Laws – § 89-5-1

Recording – The quit claim deed will need to be brought to the Clerk of the Chancery Clerk’s Office along with the required filing fee.

Signing (§ 89-3-7) – An official seal from a notary public is required to be shown under the Grantor(s) signature(s).

Telephone Number (§ 27-3-51(2)) – Mississippi’s quitclaim deed is unique in the fact that it requires the telephone number of the Grantee and Grantor on the form.

How to Write

Step 1 – To obtain a blank copy of the Mississippi Quit Claim Deed, select one of the buttons on the right. Each button below the image will grant you access to one blank copy. You may download this form as a PDF, ODT, or Word file. Make sure to have the appropriate program necessary to edit or enter information onscreen. Otherwise, you may print this form then fill it in with a typewriter.

Step 2 – In order to properly submit this document to the appropriate Mississippi Chancery Clerk, some pieces of information must be submitted in the left area of this document’s header section. The first will be the “Prepared By” section. Here, the individual submitting the information on this form (usually the Grantor) must fill in the lines labeled “Name,” “Address,” “State,” “Zip Code,” and “Telephone Number” with his or her information.

Step 3 – The next section requiring attention, in the header, is located beneath the label “After Recording Return To.” Here, you will supply the Mississippi Chancery Clerk receiving this form with the Mail Recipient and Mailing Address it may send materials regarding this submittal. There will only be four items required for this purpose, each with its own applicable label: “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code.” It is imperative that a Mail Recipient’s Full Name and the corresponding Mailing Address is filled in accurately.

Step 4 – Report the Mississippi County where the Property at the focus of this form is located. Submit this information on the space succeeding the words “County of.”

Step 5 – Next, in the paragraph beginning with “Know All Men,” record the total Sum that is being exchanged for the right to assume the Grantor’s Claim to the Property on the first blank space. This amount should be recorded using words, but you will need to also enter it numerically after the “$” sign in the parentheses.

Step 6 – The term “in hand paid to” will have two blank spaces immediately following it. On the first space report the Full Name of the individual releasing his or her Claim to the Property and follow this by filling in the word “Grantor.”

Step 7 – The next empty spaces will need the Address where the Grantor (just named) resides. Using the space provided succeeding the phrase “residing at,” report the Street Address of the Grantor’s residence. Then, enter the County, City, and State that applies to the Grantor Address reported. Several blank spaces will be provided for this information to be reported and each item will have its own designated area. Use the spaces succeeding the terms “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” to report this information. Finally, you will need to enter the Grantor’s Phone Number in the blank space that follows the words “…contact telephone number of.”

Step 8 – Now, in the first space that follows the term “hereby conveys and quitclaims to,” report the Full Name of the individual who intends to assume the Grantor’s Claim or Interest in the discussed Property. You must also fill in the term “Grantee” on the space immediately succeeding the Grantee’s Name.

Step 9 – In addition to confirming the Identity of the Grantee, you will also need to supply this document with the Grantee’s Residential Address. This requirement will need to be fulfilled using the blank spaces succeeding the phrase “residing at.” The first item will be the Grantee’s Street Address on the first space. Then on the second blank space report the County where the Grantee’s Street Address is found. The third space, succeeding the words “City of,” requires the City where the Grantee’s Street Address is found. Next, after “State of,” fill in the State where the Grantee’s Street Address is found. Finally, you will need to document the Phone Number where the Grantor may be reliably reached after the phrase “…contact telephone number of.”

Step 10 – This will conclude the information regarding the Parties involved and the Money required by the Grantor of the Grantee. Next, we must define the Property at hand. On the last blank space of this paragraph following “County of” and preceding “Mississippi to-wit,” report the County where the Property concerned is physically found. Below this will be an area designated strictly to report specifics regarding the property. Here, report such items as the Property Address, Property Parcel Number, and the Legal Description on the Property Deed (at a minimum). You may either report this directly in this area or you may cite an attachment with this information.

Step 11 – The binding statement “To have and to hold” should be read and fully understood by the Grantor and Grantee before this document is Signed by the Grantor. Note: The Signing of the Michigan Quit Claim Deed must be notarized.

Step 12 – The area directly below the binding statement will require the Signature, Name, and Address of the Grantor(s) involved. There is enough room for two, however, all Grantors involved with this Grantor/Grantee agreement should provide a Signature and required items. You may add another area for additional Grantors to satisfy these requirements or provide an attachment. Each column will be composed of four lines bearing the designations: “Grantor’s Signature,” “Grantor’s Name,” “Address,” and “City, State & Zip.” The Signing Grantor should sign the first line, Print his or her Name on the second line, then use the succeeding two lines to report his or her Complete Address.

Step 13 – The Notary Public attending this Signing will notarize the document using the last section. Only the Notary Public present may report the County, the Individuals in attendance, the Date of the Signing, his or her ID Number and Commission Expiration, then provide the required Notary Seal.

Step 14 – This deed will need to be recorded with the Mississippi Chancery Clerk serving the County where the concerned Property is located. It is generally considered wise to first contact the relevant Mississippi Chancery Clerk to obtain instructions for submitting the completed paperwork in that county since the filing requirements for this document may vary. Fees may also vary.
