New Jersey Quit Claim Deed Form
The New Jersey Quit Claim Deed is a legal document that is used to transfer property between family friends, and those that know each other personally. It should only be used by those that can trust one another because it contains no warranties that the property is without conflicting interests. To use the form, the parties (known as the “Grantor” and “Grantee(s)”) need to enter their contact information (name, addresses) and details on the property. Only once all required sections have been completed can it be signed, acknowledged, and recorded.
Mandatory Information (§ 46:26A-3): The following information must be included in the form in order for it to be successfully recorded:
- The name of the preparer of the deed (ex: the Grantor or their attorney),
- The Grantee’s address,
- A reference to the property’s lot and block number as designated on the tax map, and
- The names of the Grantor and the officer who the Grantor must appear before.
New Construction (§ 46:15-6): For cases where the property was newly constructed, it is a requirement for the words “NEW CONSTRUCTION” to be printed at the top of the first page of the deed in upper case letters.
Signing Requirements (§ 46:14-2.1): The Grantor must have their signature notarized and signed by one (1) subscribing witness.
Filing: Upon the deed’s completion, it will need to be recorded with a state Recording Office located in the same county as the property to be transferred. The filer (typically the Grantor) will also need to pay any recording fees.
