A quitclaim deed is used to transfer property to a new owner without making promises or guarantees about the title, according to Florida Probate Solutions. The primary requirements for a quitclaim deed are found in Florida Statute 695.26, according to the Lee County Clerk of Court.
As the Lee County Clerk of Court explains, the exact requirements for the information and formatting for a quitclaim deed varies by clerk's office, which is part of the county-level government. General information includes the names of the grantor and grantee, identifying information for the property, and witness and notary public signatures. Quitclaim deeds are frequently used to add family members to a deed, according to Florida Probate Solutions.
