1. What is a California Quitclaim Deed?
A California quitclaim deed allows a person to transfer the title and ownership of real estate to another individual, business, or living trust in the state of California. Unlike other deeds, it doesn’t guarantee the owner has any right to the property being transferred. As a result, it’s considered higher risk, and typically only used to transfer property:
- among family, such as between parents and children, or between spouses during a divorce
- into a living trust
- to an LLC owned by you or someone you trust
