A quit claim deed in the state of Arkansas is a document that allows a document allows a property to be transferred from one person to the next. This type of transfer is not suitable for a traditional property transfer, as it does not guarantee a free and clear title, but only transfers ownership to prevent the previous owner(s) from coming back at a later date and claiming any interest on the property. Generally, this type of expeditious transfer is used when a property is being transferred between family members or in cases of divorce. It is highly recommended that the buyer complete a title search on a property before using a quit claim deed, especially when purchasing from a stranger.
