  A Quit Claim Deed is one type of real estate deed used in the District Of Columbia to transfer real property rights. DC ST § 42-601 governs the construction of deeds for Washington, D.C. The statutory form is for a generic grant deed with no explicit covenants of warranty, but the statute allows for modifications to clearly express the intent and purpose of the final document. By identifying the form as a quit claim deed, and replacing the word "grant" with “quit claim,” the statutory form conveys only the grantor’s interest and rights to the property, if any, and contains no warranty of title. There remains, however, a good-faith presumption that the grantor is not aware of any other owners or title conflicts related to the real property. In general, a properly executed and recorded quit claim deed provides no protection for the grantee against future claims.
