A Wyoming quit claim deed conveys any interest a grantor has in a property to another party (the “grantee”) without stating the nature of their interest or the title’s condition. Since quit claim deeds do not include covenants protecting the grantee against encumbrances, they are mainly used for transfers where warranties are not required, such as an LLC member conveying their interest to the LLC or a gift transfer between family members. They are also used to cure defects; for example, if an owner legally changes their name, they may record a quit claim deed to amend the previous deed.
