YORKVILLE AND KENDALL COUNTY QUIT CLAIM DEED IN TRUST ATTORNEY:  PREPARATION OF QUIT CLAIM DEEDS FOR LIVING TRUST

What is a Quit Claim Deed?

A Quit Claim Deed conveys real estate title to another person.  Unlike a Warranty Deed, a Quit Claim Deed fails to guarantee that the person has good title.  A Quit Claim Deed conveys the title exactly as the person or entity has.  There are several reasons why one would consider a Quit Claim Deed, including the following:

  • To convey or remove title so another party can refinance and get a mortgage in their name (and generally out of the other person’s name);
  • To add a friend or family member (such as a spouse) to their house and real estate title;
  • To transfer an investment or vacation property to their LLC or Corporation;
  • To transfer their real estate to their Revocable Living Trust or otherwise known as a “Living Trust”;
  • To change the character of property ownership such as by tenants by entirety versus joint tenants;
  • To transfer property to a child or adult children;
  • To clear up real estate title issue(s);

What is a Deed in Trust?

A Deed in Trust is simply a transfer of real estate to a person’s Living Trust.  Unlike a Quit Claim Deed, a Deed in Trust is the real estate form used to re-title somebody’s home or investment property into their own Living Trust.  The purpose of the Deed in Trust is to re-title an asset to avoid probate court.  With a Living Trust, it is vital to properly fund one’s trust which typically includes transferring one’s real estate interest into their respective Living Trust.
