Oklahoma Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Oklahoma quit claim deed provides a method by which a person who owns a piece of property in Oklahoma can sell their interest in that property to another person. Because it is a quit claim deed, the seller is not necessarily obligated to provide any guarantees as to what their interest in the property is save for their statement and whatever proof of ownership they wish to offer. These deeds are used in limited circumstances depending on the situation at hand and a fair amount of due diligence is placed on the shoulders of the grantee before he or she should enter such a conveyance. As with all deeds, the deed must be acknowledged by a notary in Oklahoma and filed with the registrar of deeds in the Oklahoma county in which the property is located.

Laws – § 16-41

Recording – A quit claim deed must be filed with the County Clerk’s Office along with the required filing fee (varies by location).

Signing (§ 16-26) – This form is required to be authorized by the Grantor(s) in front of a Notary Public with their acknowledgment and seal.

How to Write

Step 1 – The Oklahoma Quit Claim Deed is available through the buttons on the right labeled “PDF,” “ODT,” and “Word.” Select the button of the file type you wish to work with then save it to a folder you have easy access to on your computer.

Step 2 – The top of the first page have blank spaces designated to report some preliminary information. The section at the top of the first page, “Prepared By,” shall require the Full Name of the person preparing this document for submission to be reported on the line “Name.” Then on the space “Address,” document the full Preparer Address. Two lines are provided for this end. The last line, containing “State” and “Zip Code,” must have the Preparer’s State and the Preparer’s Zip Code.

Step 3 – This filing will need to be returned after it has been recorded and filed by the Oklahoma County Clerk, County Recorder, or Registrar of Deeds processing this form. The second section on this page, “After Recording Return To,” is where you must report the “Name” and “Address” of the Mail Recipient designated to receive this package. You must also provide the State and Zip Code of this Address on the two blank spaces bearing the appropriate label.

Step 4 – The first blank space available, just above the main paragraph, calls for the Property’s County to be reported upon it. You may find this blank space on the same line as the words “County of.”

Step 5 – Locate the first empty space on the second line of the paragraph statement (found after the words “consideration of the sum of”) and write out the full Dollar Amount the Grantee must pay the Grantor. This should also be numerically entered inside the parentheses.

Step 6 – The Party receiving this Payment is known as the “Grantor.” Report the Name of the Person accepting Payment in exchange for his/her/their Claim to the Property on the space provided following the words “in hand paid to.” The word “Grantor” must be filled out the empty space following this Name. The Address of the Grantor will need to be documented just past the words “residing at.” There will be an empty line available for this.

Step 7 – The next three phrases: “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” following the Grantor information must have the County, City, and State of the Grantor’s Address reported on the respective spaces following them.

Step 8 – The Oklahoma Quit Deed Claim will now focus on the other party participating in this Claim: the Grantee. There will be a blank space immediately following the wording “hereby quitclaim, grant, bargain, sell, and convey unto” where you must enter the Full Name of each Grantee. Here, too, you must attach the proper term to this individual by entering the phrase “Grantee” on the empty space immediately following the reported Grantee Name.

Step 9 – The last blank space (found just before the term “Oklahoma, to-wit”) requires you to declare the Oklahoma County where the Property is located. There will be a few blank lines available below this to provide a report on the Address, Legal Description of the Property, and any Identification Numbers assigned to the Property by a governing body. Make sure this is fully and accurately reported. You may attach a document with this information if more room is necessary.

Step 10 – The next page must be filled in with the Grantor Signature, Printed Name, and Address. Two columns, each with several labeled lines, are provided at the top of the page. Find the line “Grantor’s Signature.” The Grantor must Sign on this space. On the line above the designation “Grantor’s Name,” the Printed Name of the Grantor must be present. Finally, the lines designated as “Address” and “City, State & Zip” must have the Grantor Address reported. The Grantor’s action of Signing must be done in the presence of a Notary and the document must be notarized. The next area (below “State of Oklahoma) may only be utilized by the Notary Public. He or she will fill in the basic information identifying the County, Individuals present, Date, Notary Public ID Number, and Notary Public Commission Expiration Date then provide his or her Seal by stamping the document.

Step 11 – The various counties in Oklahoma each have their own set of criteria for submitting an Oklahoma Quit Claim Deed for recording. In some counties, this document will be submitted to the Oklahoma County Clerk. In other counties separate departments in the County Clerk’s Office, such as Registry of Deeds or County Recorder, will be the appropriate department to file this paperwork. Contact the Oklahoma County Clerk located in the County where the Property is situated to obtain that county’s filing requirements and fees.
