How to Do a Quitclaim Deed in New Jersey


If you wish to sell, or gift, your ownership in New Jersey property to someone, you must execute a deed in order to effectuate the transfer. One type of deed you may use is a quitclaim deed. This is a simple legal way to transfer title; however, it provides no promise of a clear title to the property. You may retain an attorney to prepare a quitclaim deed, or you may choose to draft and execute one yourself.

Obtain the legal description of the property that you wish to quitclaim. The legal description can be found on an existing deed or mortgage note, on a tax bill, or by contacting the records section of the county clerk's office in the New Jersey county where the property is located.

Locate a quitclaim deed form. A New Jersey quitclaim deed form can be found online, at a local stationary store or at a local library.

Complete the form in its entirety; however, do not sign it until you are in front of a notary public.

File the deed with the county clerk's office in the county where the property is located. A small filing fee will apply, which will vary by county.
