The deed is then notarized when the individual transfers the real estate property, signing it in the presence of a Notary Public. The deed shall then be “recorded” (filed) in the county where the real estate property is situated at the County Recorder’s Office.

Quitclaim Deed

That the real estate is free of encumbrances done, created, or suffered by the grantor or anybody claiming under the grantor at the time of the grant deed’s execution
