A North Carolina Quit Claim Deed is a legal document used to convey property from one person to the next. Quit claim deeds differ from warranty deeds because they provide no warranty or guarantee that seller has the authority to sell the property, and that the title of the home is clear. It is always wise that the buyer conducts a thorough title search in the property before moving forward with the purchase to ensure that there are no encumbrances.
