North Dakota Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The North Dakota quit claim deed is used to legally transfer the interest in real estate from one person to another. This type of deed, unlike a warranty deed, does not come with a guarantee as to title. That is, the language of this document only states grantor (or seller) is selling whatever interest he may (or may not) have in the property to the buyer. This is quite different from verifying ownership through a Title or producing a Warranty Deed. This type of deed is more often than not used in close situations where the parties are related, such as a between a trust creator and a trust. It may be prudent to have a property search completed prior to closing in most other situations. However, regardless of whether there is a reasonable amount of familiarity between buyer and seller, this does constitute a legal contract between the two parties.

Laws – § 47-10-15

Recording – This form is required to be processed at the County Recorder’s Office where the real estate is located.

Signing (§ 47-19-03) – A quit claim deed created in the State of North Dakota must be signed with the Grantor(s) in the presence of a Notary Public.

How to Write

Step 1 – From the right hand side of this page select one of the buttons, labeled “PDF,” “ODT,” or “Word,” to download a blank copy of the North Dakota Quit Claim Deed. Each of these buttons will deliver an identical copy. The only difference between these files is the format they are in (PDF, ODT, and Word). Select the appropriate format you wish, then save it to your hard drive.

Step 2 – The first section will require some prerequisite information to be reported. The first items to be input will be the Name, Address, State, and Zip Code of the person filling out this form. Typically, the individual relinquishing their claim to the Property at hand is the Preparer of this document. There will be an empty line for “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code.”

Step 3 – Next there will be several available spaces where you may report on the remaining prerequisites required. Use the “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code” spaces to report the Name and Address of the Mail Recipient the North Dakota County Recorder processing this document must use to return the filed materials.

Step 4 – This form will first require a declaration of which County the Property in discussion is located in. The Name of this County should be placed on the blank space following the words “County Of”

Step 5 – The paragraph on the first page will contain the necessary language but will require several pieces of information unique to the situation. The first empty space requiring attention will be in the first sentence. Here you must spell out the total Amount of Money the Grantee is submitting to the Grantor. Then type in the Numerical Amount of Money the Grantee must submit to the Grantor in the parentheses.

Step 6 – The next empty space, succeeding the words “in hand paid to,” should have the Full Name of the Grantor reported. You must then enter the actual word “Grantor” on the next empty line.

Step 7 – The following words “residing at” precede the next empty line requiring information to be entered. Report the Address of the Grantor here. Then report the County, City, and State where the documented Grantor Address is found on the next three empty lines in that order.

Step 8 – It is important the Grantee information also be documented. To begin, enter the Grantee’s Name on the empty line, just after the phrase “hereby quitclaim to,” as well as the word “Grantee” on the next empty line. The phrase following this area, “residing at,” will precede the blank line where you must enter the Full Address of the Grantee’s Residence. The empty spaces following this term will all seek to document the location of the Grantee Address. On the first empty space following the Grantee Address you filled in, enter the County where the Grantee Address is. Then enter the City of this Address on the second empty line. Finally enter the State of the Grantee Address on the third empty line.

Step 9 – The Property at the heart of this document will need its County to be reported on the last empty space of this paragraph.

Step 10 – The empty space at the end of this paragraph, just after the words “North Dakota to-wit” will need the Address and Legal Description of the Property. You may obtain the Legal Description from the Property Deed. If the Property is real estate with a Tax ID number, then report this as well.

Step 11 – The next available set of lines will provide an area for the Grantor to sign this document. The Grantor Signature must be notarized so it would be recommended to have all the Grantors required to Sign this document to do so at the same time. Find the words “Grantor’s Signature.” The Grantor must Sign his or her Name on this empty line.

Step 12 – Find the words “Grantor’s Name.” The Grantor must Type or Print his or her Name on this empty line.

Step 13 – Find the word “Address.” The empty line above this word needs the Address of the Grantor to be reported. The next empty space, “City, State & Zip” is where the Grantor must continue the rest of his or her Address.

Step 14 – The area at the bottom of the second page has been provided exclusively for the use of the Notary Public. This is the entity who will perform the notarial tasks required to notarize this Signing. When finished, this section will contain the County, People, and Date applicable to this Signing. The notarization occurs with the report of the Notary Public Number, Commission Expiration, and the stamping of the Notary Seal.

Step 15 – Find the North Dakota County Recorder serving the County where the Property is found. Each county in North Dakota will have a separate set of requirements for this filing process. In addition to this, the cost of filing this paperwork will vary from county to county. Obtain this information then follow the necessary steps required for this filing and arrange for payment of all applicable Fees.
