Nevada Quitclaim Deed

Last Updated: 8/3/2015

Document Description

A quitclaim is typically used when someone wants to transfer part or all of a parcel of real estate quickly. It is a fairly easy method to do so. The one caveat is that because there is no true warranty, you are taking someone at his or her word as far as ownership goes. This is why quitclaims are usually used between parties who already have an element of trust between them or at least a general knowledge of the property ownership.

A quitclaim can be used to transfer title from parent to child, wife to husband and wife or an individual to an entity such as a corporation or trust. This does not mean that this type of deed cannot be used between people who are not related, just that there is no warranty of ownership.

Example: Tim Smith owns a one-quarter interest of a property in Esmeralda County and uses a quitclaim deed to transfer two-quarters of that property to John Tucker. We see that Tim Smith does not possess that much interest in this real estate, but John Tucker has no way of knowing that with a quitclaim deed. This is where a quitclaim deed can be tricky and therefore is best not used with strangers or people you do not trust.

Nevada has specific requirements for filing quitclaims. Most often these are handled and recorded at the county level. Costs for recording will vary from county to county. Be sure that you contact the recorder’s office to check on the fees for the county in which the property is located.

    Requirements for recording a QuitClaim Deed NRS 111.312
    1. Mailing address of the grantee or the mailing address of the person making the recording request.
    2. Assessor’s parcel number on the top left corner of the first page unless the document relates exclusively to the transfer of water rights.
    3. Quitclaim will not be recorded unless the document recorded contains the name and address of the person to whom a statement of taxes assessed on the property is mailed to.
    4. The assessor’s parcel number is not considered a complete legal description.
    5. If a legal description is in meets and bounds, the document must also include the name and mailing address of whom prepared the legal description.
    6. IF the document using the same legal description has been recorded before; the document must include all information necessary to identify and locate the prior recording; however the name and address of whom prepared the legal description is not required.

    A State of Nevada Declaration of Value must accompany all quit claim deeds presented for recording. Documents that transfer an interest in real property but are non-taxable do not require a Declaration of Value. Non-taxable documents are a lease for a term of years, an easement, a deed of trust or common law mortgage, an affidavit of surviving tenant, and a conveyance or a right of way.

    The Declaration of Value is provided by the Nevada Tax Commission and may not be materially altered or added to. If a quit claim deed is presented with an incomplete Declaration of Value, the recorder may refuse the items for recording.
