Quitclaim Deed effectively gives "Constructive
Notice" to the world that the grantee now has an
interest in the property being deeded.
Basically, constructive notice means that once a
deed is recorded every person or entity in the
world is legally presumed to have knowledge of
the grantee's interest in the property, even if
they have no actual knowledge of it.
most states a Quitclaim Deed need not be
recorded to be valid however it is generally
required in order for the deed to be binding on
a third party. If a Quitclaim Deed is not
recorded it is possible for another person to
claim an interest in a property ahead of the
grantee of an unrecorded deed.
recording of the deed is done in the county
where the property is located.
