The Arizona quitclaim deed is a form used to transfer property from one person to another without any warranties as to whether the title is clear. In other words, the person transferring the property is not making any warranties against any other claims to the property from others. The transferor is only transferring any right they may have to the property, whatever that right may be. Once the document is complete, it will need to be signed by the parties in front of a notary public. The purchaser will then have to file the deed for recording with the recorder in the county in which the property is located within 60 days.
Recording () – All quit claim deeds are to be filed, along with any necessary fee(s), with the in the jurisdiction of the property.
Signing () – A notary public must first witness the Grantor(s) signature(s) before the form may be filed with the County Recorder.
