Virginia Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Virginia Quit Claim Deed is a simple to use form that will legally release a Property from one individual (Grantor) to another (Grantee) according to the terms contained within it. This form is a basic quitclaim statement, meaning whatever Claims, Interests, Ownership, or Rights the Grantor has in the Property will be forfeit to the Grantee. For the Grantee, it is important to note that while a Grantor must have the right to make such a conveyance, there is no actual language required or proof required this right exists. A Title search on the land remains a preferable method for verifying this. This form will need to be filed with the Virginia Circuit Court Clerk of the Property’s County in order to protect one from unforeseen future claims to the Property.

CAPITAL LETTERS – The Grantor and Grantee must be stated in the first clause/sentence of the document with their names being in capital letters.

Laws – § 55-96

Recording – After signing bring to the Clerk of the Circuit Court along with the required filing fee(s).

Signing (§ 55-106) – The Grantor(s) have the choice of authorizing the form in front of Two (2) Witnesses or a Notary Public.

How to Write

Step 1 – You may save the Virginia Quit Claim Deed by selecting one of the buttons on the right “PDF,” “ODT,” or “Word.”

Step 2 – The first item will be on the first page in the box beginning with “Prepared By.” You must report the Full Name and the Complete Address along with the State and Zip Code of the individual reporting information on this document.

Step 3 – The next item you must report is the Mailing Address where you wish the Virginia Circuit Court Clerk to mail the filed paperwork once it has been processed. Use the “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code” in the “After Recording Return To” section.

Step 4 – The Virginia Quit Claim Deed requires the first statement to report the Date and the Identity of Grantor and Grantee. The Grantor and Grantee Name must be presented in capital letters. Starting with the term “…made this,” report the Calendar Day, Month, and Year this form will be effective then, report the Full Name of the Grantor and the Grantee on their respective lines.

Step 5 – In the second statement, declare the dollar value of the Total Payment being submitted by the Grantee to the Grantor on the first two spaces. First, written out then, numerically.

Step 6 – We will use these to define the Grantor. Input the full name of the party releasing all claims to the property on the space immediately after the phrase “…Paid to” then further define the Grantor by his or her profession or status.

Step 7 – Next, you will find four blank spaces following the words “residing at.” On these spaces (and in this order) report the Home Address, County, City, and State of the Grantor.

Step 8 – The statement “hereby quitclaims to” will be followed by six blank spaces which require you enter the Grantee Name, the word “Grantee,” the Home Address of the Grantee, the “County of” the Grantee, the “City of” the Grantee,” and the “State of” the Grantee. Enter one item per space in that order.

Step 9 – The next area is exclusively for the Grantor. The top of the second page will contain enough room for two Grantors to Sign their Names then, Print their Names and Addresses. You may add more lines if there are more than two Grantors. The spaces provided are appropriately designated with the terms “Grantor’s Signature,” “Grantor’s Name,” “Address,” and “City, State & Zip.” This Signature must be Witnessed and Notarized.

Step 10 – Just below the Grantor Signature area will be the words “In Witness Whereof.” Here, two Witnesses must provide their Signatures then Print their Names and Addresses directly below their Signature. This may be done in the column beginning with the words “Witness’s Signature.”

Step 11 – The third section of the second page, beginning with “State of Virginia” is provided so the Notary Public can notarize the Signing of this quit claim deed. Only the attending Notary Public may provide this information.

Step 12 – Determine the Virginia County the Property is located in, then contact the Virginia Circuit Court Clerk directly. You must obtain the fees and submission guidelines set in place for this filing by this County. Once you have obtained this information and are in compliance with these guidelines, submit this document and its attachments to the Virginia Circuit Court Clerk.
