New York Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The New York Quit Claim Deed may be used as a legal tool to convey a Property from one individual to another. This form will also require additional filings, some of them dependent on the location of the Property itself. This form does not provide actual proof of the Grantor’s relationship with the Property only that whatever that relationship is, it will be transferred to another party as a result of this conveyance. This form must be filed with the New York County recorder where the Property is located.

Additional Required Forms:

  1. Form TP-584 (All Counties)
  2. RP-5217-PDF (All Counties except NYC) OR RP-5217-NYC (Just NYC) This version may also be Filled-in and Filed Online.

Recording – All quit claim deeds are filed with the County Clerk’s Office in the jurisdiction of where the property is located (See Court Locator).

Signing (RPP § 306) – A quit claim deed is required to be signed with a Notary Public present (only the Grantor(s) must sign).

How to Write

Step 1 – The buttons on the right of this page (“PDF,” “ODT,” or “Word”) make the New York Quit Claim Deed form available in the files types displayed.

Step 2 – On the first page locate the box in the upper left hand corner. Here, you must enter the “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code” of the individual filling out this form using the first four blank lines.

Step 3 – In the next section of this box, “After Recording Return To,” you must provide the New York County Recorder the Address where you would like the filed paperwork to be mailed.

Step 4 – On the first blank space of the quit claim deed, located just below the heading “State of New York,” report the New York County where the Property is found.

Step 5 – The paragraph statement, in the center of the first page, needs the total Payment required for the transference of this Property to occur. Write this on the first space then, input it numerically in the parentheses.

Step 6 – The Grantor’s Name must be reported along with the written word “Grantor” on the two spaces after “in hand paid to.” This should be followed with the Grantor’s Home Address on the third space after this phrase. Then report the “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” this Home Address on the next three spaces.

Step 7 – The Grantee of the Property will also be defined on this document. Enter the Full Name and the term “Grantee” on the two spaces following “…remise, release, and quitclaim unto.” Then on the third space after this phrase, enter the Home Address of the Grantee. This must be followed by the “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” the Grantee on the next three spaces.

Step 8 – Just before the words “New York to-wit” declare the Property’s County. Below this, you must report the Legal Description of the Property along with the Physical Address.

Step 9 – The Grantor must then fill in the first section on the second page with his or her Signature, Printed Name, and Address. It is required that this be Notarized. There will be an area designated for this exact purpose alone just below the Grantor Signature section.

Step 10 – Organize your paperwork, including the County-specific tax forms that must be included. Then, contact the New York County Recorder assigned to the County the Property is in. Obtain the instructions and fees particular to that County’s submission guideline to file this paperwork properly with that authority.
