What Is a Nevada Quitclaim Deed?

A Nevada quitclaim deed is a legal document that allows one to convey real estate to someone without a guarantee or warranty. A quitclaim deed only transfers an owner’s rights to the buyer, ensuring that the previous owner cannot come back later to claim an interest in the property.

These documents are often used for transfers between close friends or family members, and even in cases of divorce. Nevertheless, it is always highly recommended that the seller conduct a thorough title search on the property before proceeding with the transfer.

If you instead wish to transfer property in a way that protects the new buyer, you should consider another type of deed, such as a general warranty deed or special warranty deed.  If you have a question about what type of deed you should use, you should seek legal advice.
