How to Properly Format a Quit Claim Deed for Recording in Floyd County

Home Forms Information Recording Forum
Quit claim deeds relating to real property located in Floyd County can be recorded with the Clerk of the Circuit Court. Recording fees and transfer taxes must be paid before an instrument can be recorded.
Every deed conveying lands shall be recorded in the office of the clerk of the superior court of the county where the land is located. A deed may be recorded at any time; but a prior unrecorded deed loses its priority over a subsequent recorded deed from the same vendor when the purchaser takes such deed without notice of the existence of the prior deed.
Recording a Quit Claim Deed:
1. Quit claim deeds must be attested by two witnesses, one of whom must be the notary. If one of the two witnesses is not a notary, there must be an acknowledgment by a notary attached to the deed.
2. Before a quit claim deed can be recorded it must be signed, dated, and acknowledged as required by law.
3. Submit documents on 8.5x11 inch white paper or 8.5x14 inch white paper. Black or blue ink in a font size of at least 10 point is required.
4. On the first page, provide a 3-inch top margin. All other margins should be at least 1 inch.
5. At the top of the first page, provide the name and mailing address of the person to whom the deed is to be returned after recording.
6. The name and address of the grantee must be included.
7. The grantor must sign the quit claim deed. Corresponding names must be printed, typed, or stamped beneath all signatures.
8. Provide a legal description of the real property being conveyed. The legal description should show the lot, block, and subdivision name.

A Real estate transfer tax form must be presented whenever a quit claim deed is recorded. The transfer tax is determined on the basis of the written disclosure of the consideration or value of the interest in the property granted. The disclosure should be made on a form or in electronic format prescribed by the commissioner and provided by the clerk of the superior court.
