What is the difference between a Quit Claim Deed and a Warranty Deed?

What is quit claim deed? A quit claim deed is an instrument used by a grantor to relinquish the grantor’s interest in real estate, in favor of a specified grantee. The quit claim deed is an instrument that does not come with any warranties of title, and should the grantor not possess title in the property attempting to be conveyed, or should there be a title defect, then the grantee acquires either nothing or the property subject to the cloud on title. In any event, the grantee will have no recourse against the grantor under the quit claim deed. For the reasons stated, the quit claim deed is an instrument best used to deed oneself out of the title to property, or as a curative instrument to clear a title defect, but not an instrument by which a grantee should acquire title to real property.

Important limitations and problems with quit claim deeds: The conveyance by quit claim deed is not insurable as part of a closing transaction. Additionally, a grantor of property who conveys the property via quit claim deed, loses the benefit of any Owner’s Title insurance that the grantor may possess. By way of example, if the grantor conveys real property to her son via a quit claim deed, any prior liens, encumbrances and other clouds on title would no longer be insured.
