A Michigan quit claim deed is a document whereby a grantor is a document whereby a property owner (grantor) relinquishes their title rights without warranties to the grantee that the title is unencumbered. Legal ownership of real estate is signified by its property title, which is both recorded and transferred through a deed. When a property is quitclaimed, the deed makes no guarantee regarding the title’s quality or the grantor’s ownership and right to transfer. Quit claims are often used for non-transactional transfers such as making a gift of real estate or editing a property title.
