Montana Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Montana quit claim deed is a legal form that allows the conveyance or transfer of real property (land and buildings) from one person, usually called the grantor, to another, usually called the grantee. A quit claim deed is different from a warranty deed because it does not come with a guarantee from the grantor as to the title. All it transfers is whatever interest grantor may have in the property, which could be all right, title and interest or no right, title and interest. This type of deed is often used in “close” situations – between close family members, or between related entities.

Attachments – The Realty Transfer Certificate is required to be added to the Quit Claim Deed to state the details of the transaction as well as list the water rights of the real estate.

Recording – This form must be filed with the County Clerk and Recorder’s Office in the jurisdiction where the land is located (See County Website List).

Signing (70-21-203) – A quit claim deed that is filed in Montana must be witnessed by a Notary Public upon the signature(s) of the Grantor(s).

Step 2 – The initial section of this document (“Prepared By”) requires documentation of the individual reporting the items on this form. The Preparer of this paperwork must fill in his or her Name on the first available space in this section. Then on the “Address” line, enter the Complete Address of this individual. Make sure to fill in the State and Zip Code where the Preparer Address is located.

Step 3 – The second set of items requiring attention (“After Recording Return To”) will serve as instructions to the Montana County Clerk you are submitting this document with. In this section, report the Mailing Address (including Mail Recipient) where the returned materials may be sent. This will be the Mail Recipient and Address the Montana County Clerk will mail paperwork regarding this document. There will be a line assigned for the “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code” for the Address.

Step 4 – This needs several pieces of information unique to the Parties, Monies, and Property involved. First, on the first blank space after the words “State of Montana,” report the County this Property is located in.

Step 5 – The prominent area of this document will contain a paragraph with the language required. On the first blank space in this paragraph, enter the exact Sum of Money the Grantor requires for this Conveyance of Property. Next, you must enter the written version of this Sum on the first blank line then enter it in its numerical form on the space after the dollar sign.

Step 6 – The term “in hand paid to” must be followed with the Identity of the individual who currently has a Claim to the Property and will relinquish this upon payment of the above Sum. This is known as the “Grantor.” Enter the Grantor’s Name on the first space after this term then input the word “Grantor” on the next blank space.

Step 7 – The next item to be focused on must be entered in the next available space. Here, you must report the Address where the Grantor resides. In addition to this, you must define the County where this Address is found on the space provided after “County of.” Then, input the City where this Address is on the space provided following “City of.” Finally, input the State the Grantor Address is found just after “State of.”

Step 8 – Next, you will need to similarly define the Grantee or the individual who is interested in assuming the Grantor’s Claim to this Property. You may input the Full Name of this party on the space provided after the expression “…conveys and quitclaims to” then input the word “Grantee” on the space immediately following this.

Step 9 – Locate the wording “…situated in the County of,” then verify the County the Property is found in.

Step 10 – The blank lines at the bottom of this page are provided so that you may input Identifying facts relevant to the Property at hand. Use this area to report the Address, Tax Parcel ID Number, and the Legal Description as it is recorded with the Montana Recorder’s Office. You may attach a document with this information if there is not enough space.

Step 11 – The final section of this form begins with a Montana Quit Claim Statement, contains a Grantor Signature area, and an area where Notarization will be displayed. The Grantor must read and understand the statement then, fill in one of the columns beginning with the line “Grantor’s Signature.”

Step 12 – The first line in the Signature area requires the Signature of the Grantor. The Grantor must then print his or her Name on the space available beneath the Signature. Lastly, the Street Address of the Grantor must be submitted for documentation on the “Address” line. Follow this by reporting the “City, State & Zip” where this Street Address is located on the last line.

Step 13 – The Notary Public Section below the Grantor Signature section may only be satisfied by the attending Notary Public. This entity will supply the County, Names of attending Parties, and Signature Date in the designated areas. The Notary will also supply his or her ID and Commission Expiration Date. The Notary must provide a seal for this document to be notarized officially.

Step 14 – This document must be submitted to the Montana County Clerk acting on behalf of the County where the Property is physically found. Different Counties will have different requirements for this recording process thus, contact the Montana County Clerk serving the Property’s County for instructions specific to that County. Submit the completed form according to the instructions you obtained with the Fees that County requires.
