Do we need a property deed to transfer title of real estate to our child?
A property deed is the legal document which transfers property title from one party to another. The transfer is actually contained in a granting clause within the deed. There are various types of deeds to transfer property including warranty deed, a quitclaim deed, and a beneficiary deed.
A valid deed must contain the following information:
A minor or someone who has been declared incompetent may not sign a deed.
In your case, the preferable way to transfer real property to your child is through a quitclaim deed. The deed must be notarized and filed with the land records office where the property is located.
If you have additional question regarding title deeds property, talk with an experienced estates attorney to discuss your case.
