Answer simple questions online or by phone, get finished legal documents ready-for-signature

If you need to transfer the ownership of a home, land or other real estate property from one person to another, you will need to prepare and file a Deed. Once filed with the appropriate local government agency, a Quitclaim Deed, Warranty Deed, or Survivorship Deed permits the legal transfer of real estate while outlining the terms of the transfer.

And now, getting that completed Quitclaim Deed document is simple with Document Preparation Services from Standard Legal! just answer some questions online or by phone, and your finished documents will be on their way, ready to sign.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: a new Deed must be signed by the currently listed property owner to initiate ownership transfer. So only a  LIVING PERSON  or a Trust can transfer ownership of a property to another using a Quitclaim Deed. Property owned by a deceased person cannot be transferred to a new owner using a Deed!)


Different situations call for the use of different type of deeds. Below are the Deed structures available to you through the Standard Legal document preparation service.

Depending upon the Deed type you choose to manage your own particular property transfer needs, Standard Legal will provide a questionnaire to collect some basic information about the property and the type of transfer desired.

From there, Standard Legal's document preparation professionals will draft a fully completed deed, ready for signature.

The process then requires the person selling or transferring the property to sign the deed where indicated, have it witnessed and notarized, and then either provide it to the person taking title to the property or file it with the appropriate government office. Once filed, ownership and title to the property is transferred; it's that easy!

Standard Legal offers the following Deeds; simply choose the one that best fits your situation and Standard Legal will complete the deed to meet your needs:

Quitclaim Deed
A quitclaim deed is used to conveying property from a seller to a purchaser in a variety of situations -- this type of deed can be used when a person or couple purchases property and needs to transfer title, when a relative desires to name another person as the co-owner of property that he or she currently owns by him or herself or when a couple getting a divorce needs to transfer property (this list is not exhaustive and other situations can call for the use of a quitclaim deed). This type of deed contains no "warranties" that the property is being transferred with good title (without encumbrances except those that are filed on record), nor is any joint tenancy or right of survivorship created.

Quitclaim Deed Transferring Property to a Trust
This deed can be used when a person establishes a trust and needs to transfer property to that trust in order to "fund" a trust (or when owners of the property desire to transfer property to a trust).

Warranty Deed
A Warranty Deed by definition is a deed which conveys the title to property and the seller guarantees the title to be good and unencumbered except as stated; and agrees to defend and protect the purchaser against any loss that may arise in the future from any defect in the title at the time of conveyance.

The warranty deed is the most common type of deed used to transfer property from one individual or business to another. Warranty deeds usually require that a title search be conducted to ensure that the property is free and clear of liens or encumbrances. Any lien or encumbrance discovered could effectively "cloud" the title of the property and make warranting the property risky or impossible.

This deed can be used to conveying property from a seller to a purchaser in a variety of situations - for example, but not limited to, when a person or couple purchases a house from a homeowner and needs to transfer title or when a relative desires to name another person as the co-owner of a house or parcel of property that he or she currently owns by him or herself.

Survivorship Deed
This deed is a Warranty Deed with "survivorship" rights created. This deed creates a joint or survivorship tenancy between two or more grantees, with each of the typically owning an undivided interest in the whole of the property. Upon the death of grantee, his/her interest passes in equal shares to the surviving grantee(s) as a matter of law (with an affidavit being filed in the County Deed Records to evidence the transfer). Since the property transfers to the other grantee(s), the deceased grantee's prior interest in the property is not a probate asset (but may be included in the estate of the decedent for state estate tax purposes). Where husband and wife are in title in survivorship, divorce terminates the survivorship tenancy and creates a tenancy in common between ex-spouses unless the divorce decree specifically provides otherwise. This deed is most commonly used when a husband and wife are taking title to property that is their residence.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The State of California has costly and complex registration requirements for each county in that state to become what they call "legal document assistants". Because of these onerous county-by-county requirements, Standard Legal has decided not to provide document preparation services to any California resident. Should a California resident place an order for Document Preparation, Standard Legal will automatically convert that order into one for legal forms software shipped on a CD, and we will credit the price difference between the two orders. We will email access links to download the legal form software files at once, and we will ship the CD for the title that matches the original purchase topic. California residents can also use our FREE Attorney Find service to find a local attorney to create legal documents for them, if they do not feel comfortable creating documents on their own.
