Oregon Quit Claim Deed Form

The Oregon Quit Claim Deed is an official legal document that is used for transferring interest in real estate. In comparison to a Warranty Deed, it is basic and does not include any protections or guarantees. However, so long the form is used exclusively among family and close friends, the deed does not need to include any protections – as this would only serve to make the form more confusing and costlier to use.

Situations in which the form is commonly used are divorce proceedings (such as giving a former spouse the rights to the property), to pass-down a property to a child, or for fixing an error on the property’s title.
