What Is a Quitclaim Deed in Michigan?

In Michigan, a quitclaim deed is used to transfer the grantor's interest in real property. The quitclaim deed can be useful for transferring property expediently without the verification of liens, warranties and ownership.

The quitclaim deed simplifies the oftentimes tedious process of transferring ownership, and its use reduces the amount of paperwork that is typically involved in the process of making a deed. As soon as an official quitclaim form is completed by all parties, a notary public signs and verifies the form before it is filed and recorded with the Michigan Registry of Deeds at the local courthouse.
