Vermont Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Vermont Quit Claim Deed is a speedy form provided for recording the transference of Property from a Grantor to a Grantee. This is an informal manner of transfer in which it is assumed, but not verified by this form, that a Grantor has a legal right to relinquish a Claim, Interest, or Title to the Property being discussed. The purpose of this deed is to simply record certain facts of an exchange. Typically, such arrangements are acceptable when a reasonable level of familiarity exists between the Grantor and Grantee (i.e. married, family, etc.). This document will need to be submitted to the Vermont County Clerk that is local to the Property being conveyed. It should be mentioned that while this form will satisfy the basic guidelines, individual Counties may have their own requirements and will have varying fees.

Step 4 – On the empty line between the words “State of Vermont” and “County” report the Name of the Vermont County where the Property is situated.

Step 5 – On the empty line that first presents itself in the main paragraph, report the Sum of Money the Grantor will need to receive in order to relinquish the Property in question. Declare this value twice, first in words then, on the next line, numerically.

Step 6 – This paragraph will require the Legal Name and Complete Address of the person who will release the Property through this document as a result of receiving Payment. This individual is the Grantor. On the first available empty space after the parentheses, provide a report on the Grantor’s Legal Name, then, on the next available space, write “Grantor.”

Step 7 – The statement being attended to, in this paragraph, will then require the Address of the Grantor’s Residence to be entered on the line following “residing at.” Once this is done, you must provide the “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” the Address used for the Grantor’s Residence reported.

Step 8 – This paragraph will continue by identifying the individual who will receive the Property the Grantor has a Claim or Interest in. To begin locate the two blank spaces following the exact term “…hereby quitclaims to” then report the Legal Name of this person and write “Grantee.” This should be followed with the Grantee’s Residential Address. Enter this address on the next available space. Then, utilize the next three blank spaces to document the “County of,” “City of,” and “State of” the Grantee’s Residential Address.

Step 9 – The paragraph we are working with will conclude requiring some specific facts about the Property involved.

The line bearing the label “Grantor’s Signature” will require the Grantor to Sign his or her Name. The line bearing the label “Grantor’s Name” will require the Grantor’s Printed or Typed Name. The line bearing the label “Address” will require the Grantor’s Street Address. The line bearing the label “City, State & Zip” will require the Grantor’s City, State, and Zip Code.

Step 11 – The Notary Public serving this Signing will report on several facts: the County, Parties, and Signature Date. Once these are confirmed the Notary will notarize this document with the Notary Seal, ID Number, and Commission Expiration Date.
