A quit claim deed in Wyoming is a document that conveys property from one person to the next when a property is being sold or transferred. This type of transfer is not a transfer that comes without risks. For the seller, they may receive the ownership interest and later find out that there is a major lien on the property that they are now responsible for. Contrasting from a warranty deed, a quit claim deed doesn’t ensure that the seller even has the legal authority to sell the property. The main purpose of these documents is to transfer the ownership interest of the property ensure that the seller does not come back at a later date to claim interest on it. A buyer should always conduct a thorough property search before using a quit claim deed to receive property.
