A Nevada quit claim deed is a form that conveys an interest in real estate with no assurances regarding the quality of the property title. What differentiates this deed from others is the absence of warranties and covenants to protect the new owner (the grantee). The lack of protection afforded in this document means the grantee will be liable for unknown title encumbrances and may be at risk against other parties claiming ownership.
While it may seem limited in purpose, a quit claim deed offers a convenient means of transferring ownership, particularly when no money is exchanged between parties. For example, a quit claim deed can be used to quickly convey ownership between spouses during a divorce settlement or to transfer property to a child.
