The Oregon quit claim deed is also used in the conveyance of property interests in Oregon, however, unlike a warranty deed, a quit claim comes with no guarantee as to the seller’s ownership in the property, their authority to sell the property or whether there are other claims or interests in the property. A grantor of a quit claim deed is not liable to the buyer if any issues arise concerning title or legality of the sale, they are merely releasing whatever claims they have to the property. Purchasers or grantees should perform due diligence by completing a Title Search if there are any doubts to the Seller’s claim. In fact, such checks should be done as a standard practice. This is because there may be claims to this property outside of the grantor’s knowledge. It should be noted the language in this document is geared strictly for an exchange between two parties regarding a consideration for a claim thus, in such events, the grantor would not necessarily be held liable.
Recording – The quit claim deed is filed with the Recorder’s Office located within the County Court Clerk’s Office (). There is a fee that is associated with the recording with every jurisdiction being different. It is best to contact your Recorder’s Office to find out the fee before submission.
Required Statement () – This Disclaimer is required to be in all deeds filed in the State of Oregon for the Grantor(s) to understand their action when signing the form.
Signing () – This form must be signed with the Grantor(s) and a Notary Public together.
How to Write
Step 1 – The buttons presented on the right and labeled by file type will each deliver the Oregon Quit Claim Deed in the format described on the button. You may download any version you prefer to work with.
Step 2 – Once you are set to enter information onto this document find the left column in the header section. This will require some attention. Provide a report on the person who is filling this form out. You must provide the Full Name and Address of this individual using the first line for the Name then the second and third line for the Address. The fourth line in this section (“Prepared By”) requires the State and Zip Code input.
Step 3 – The following section, “After Recording Return To,” must have the Address where you wish filed materials sent. The local Oregon Registrar of Deeds will require the Full Name and Complete Mailing Address placed on the first, second, and third lines accordingly. When you have done this, document the State and Zip Code where this Mailing Address is located.
Step 4 – Once you have finished filling out the required preliminary information, you may turn your attention to the line adjacent to the words “County of.”
Step 5 – On the first available line of the paragraph report the Grantor’s Name. On the second space in this paragraph enter the word “Grantor.” Then, on the third space in the paragraph enter the Address of the Grantor. Following the Address enter the County where the Grantor Residence Address is found on the empty space immediately following “County of.” Then, on the empty space adjacent to “City of,” enter the Grantee’s City. After the next phrase, “State of,” report the State of this Address.
Step 6 – The next few spaces will concentrate on the Grantee (the receiver of the Grantor’s Claim or Interest in the Property). You must Name this individual in the blank space following the words “…releases and quitclaims to” then assign his or her role by writing “Grantee” on the next empty space. The next space will request the Address of Residence the Grantee maintains. Enter this Address on that space then, on the next three empty spaces report the County, City, and State (in this order) where the Grantee’s Address is geographically found.
Step 7 – The next area of this paragraph will need documentation regarding the Consideration presented for the Grantor’s Claim on the Property at hand. Generally, this will be a Dollar Sum that should be written out as a phrase on the blank space following the phrase “…Grantee(s)”) for the sum of.” Then report this exact amount of money as a number in the parentheses.
Step 8 – Next, enter the County in Oregon where the Property is geographically found on the blank space preceding the words “Oregon to-wit.” Below this you will need to report the Address and the Legal Description of the Property. This may be quite extensive especially if the Property is divided into plots that are identified individually. It there is not enough room, you may attach a document with the Full Legal Description as it appears on the Title or Warranty Deed.
Step 9 – The second page will grant the ability to fulfill this document’s requirement for Notarized Signatures. At the top of the second page there will be enough room for two Grantors to sign their Names. Below the Signature Line, a Grantor’s Name must appear in Print form. The Grantor Address must then be documented below his/her/their Name(s). If more Grantor Signatures are required, you may add additional room for them with the appropriate editing program. The section immediately following the Signature section is for the use of the Notary Public. This entity will note the location, People, and Date applying to this Signing. Then he or she will provide the Notary Public ID Number and Commission Expiration Date. The Notary Seal will then be stamped at the bottom of this page.
Step 10 – The entity where this document is filed will be the Oregon Registrar of Deeds in the County where the Property is geographically found. Requirements and Filing Fees will vary from county to county and, in fact, the documents required will also vary. Contact the Oregon Registrar of Deeds so that you may submit the Oregon Quit Claim Deed in compliance with the regulations of the relevant county.
