A California quit claim deed is a document uniquely suited to transfer property when there’s no need for a grantor’s guarantee of a clean property title or warranty of their rightful ownership. The transferee (grantee) assumes all risk should title issues appear, such as prior easements or liens against the property. Because of its lack of warranty covenants, the quit claim deed is used in low-risk circumstances, such as fixing title defects (i.e., typos), adding/removing a name on a title (after marriage or divorce), or gifting real estate to a family member.

It should be noted that unless exempt, a documentary transfer tax declaration must be provided on the deed. This tax rate varies throughout California and should be verified before recording the deed.
