A quit claim deed in the state of Oregon is a document that legally transfers property from one person to another. This form of property transfer comes with no guarantees as to whether or not the property has a clear title and if the seller has the legal authority to sell the property. Generally, this type of transfer is conducted between family members, but can also be used for expeditious property transfers. It is highly recommended that the buyer conduct a thorough title search on the property before proceeding with a quit claim deed transaction.
