Texas Quit Claim Deed Form

The Texas Quit Claim Deed is the state-official form that transfers ownership of property from one person (the Grantor) to another (the Grantee). As the most straight-forward of the many deed-types, the contract can be completed without the use of an attorney (although consulting one is always recommended). Unlike other types of deeds, it offers no protection to the Grantee(s) in that the property does not have any guarantees that the Grantor actually possesses the property.
