Create a high quality document online now!

The Texas quit claim deed allows property to be transferred from a Seller (the “Grantor(s)”) to a Buyer (the “Grantee(s)”) by way of a 2 page document. The form must be completed with the individual who prepared the document, the parties’ names (Grantor(s) and Grantee(s)), and a detailed legal description of the real estate (descriptions are usually provided by the Local County Records). Once the form has been completed it should be signed by the Grantor(s) with a notary present and then it is ready to be filed with the Recorder’s Office. There will also be a required filing fee depending on the county it is being submitted (recommended to simply bring a blank check).
