Virginia quit claim deed is the instrument used to transfer property without the inclusion of warranties or covenants protecting the transferee against encumbrances. While a quit claim deed may be impractical for most home purchases, it is a convenient solution when buyer protection is not an important factor.

Conveyances between spouses or a parent and child are commonly made with a quit claim deed as the title’s history is usually known. Quit claim deeds can also be used to correct an error from a previous deed, such as a misspelling or a missing signature. A quit claim deed with the proper formatting requirements may be recorded with the county clerk; this is a process known as “curing” or “perfecting” the title.
