A Rhode Island quit claim deed is a document that transfers the interest of property from the seller (the Grantor) to the buyer (Grantee). In contrast from a warranty deed which provides a warranty or guarantees that the property has a clear title, a quit claim provides no warranty and comes with no guarantee that the property has a free and clear title. Due to this factor of uncertainty, it is highly recommended that the buyer conduct a title search to ensure that there are no undesirable surprises.
