Idaho Quit Claim Deed Form


An Idaho quit claim deed is a legal document used for relinquishing a person’s ownership in a property to a grantee (the buyer or recipient). No warranties are provided for the title. What this means is the grantor is releasing their ownership without affirming that they actually have any ownership, and if they do, that the property doesn’t have any liens or other title clouds.

If the parties don’t know one another or the grantee is paying money for the property (i.e., it isn’t a gift), using a quit claim deed isn’t suggested. As the benefit of the deed being relatively easy to complete and execute doesn’t outweigh the risk involved. Instead, the grantee should require a warranty deed to be used, as this requires the grantor to provide their contractual promise the title is good. However, if the grantor is looking to gift the property to a family member or they’re looking to remove someone themselves from the deed (such as after a divorce), the quit claim deed can be used effectively.


  • Statute: § 55-612
  • Wording to Omit (§ 55-612): The word “grant” cannot be included in the deed, as it could indicate a guarantee is provided to the grantee.
  • Signing Requirements (§ 55-805): The grantor must have their signature notarized.
  • Recording (§ 55-808): After being notarized, the form must be recorded with the county recorder (see county map) in the same county that the property is located in. Until the deed is recorded, it has no effect.
