What is a Quit-Claim Deed?

Quit-Claim Deeds are a type of deed where the person transferring the property (the Grantor) does not make any promises regarding the title of the property to the buyer (the Grantee).  On the other hand, warranty deeds include a promise from the Grantor that it is transferring good legal title to the Grantee.  Quit-Claim Deeds are commonly referred to as Quitclaim Deeds, Quit Claim Deeds, or mistakenly referred to as quick claim deeds.
