A Utah quit claim deed is a conveyance form for real property wherein the grantee receives the title with no warranty of the grantor’s ownership or against title defects. The absence of warranties can result in a property being conveyed that is subject to third-party liens and claims that encumber the title, leaving the grantee liable to clear it. Due to these risks, it is not recommended to transfer property with a quit claim deed unless the grantee is certain of the title’s condition and the grantor’s ownership.
