How to file a quitclaim form State of AZ

I live in Pinal County and am currently on the deed for the home my husband and I own. [b:e5deeae4e7]I am not on the loan [/b:e5deeae4e7]and we are divorcing. I need to quitclaim the home back to him, but I am unsure of the process or where to get the form. I have looked on the government sites but don't see any forms available for this. I assume I must file with the Pinal County Recorder?

I currently live in the home and he has said he is going to stop paying the mortgage. That is a whole other story in itself...but for 2 years we have sought help on our VERY upside down home, but with excellent payment and credit history the banks don't care. Now that I must find my own home he cannot afford to pay it. The bank has told him to stop paying the mortgage if he wants help. I want to make sure that God forbid should something happen and he goes into foreclosure I won't be on any public documents saying that I was involved in the foreclosure of a home. I currently have an "excellent" credit rating and I want to make sure there aren't any black marks on it. Any help is appreciated.

Hi phxrsng,

As you are on the title of the property and not on the mortgage, your credit score won't get affected if it goes into foreclosure. However, your name might appear on the foreclosure paper as you are listed on the title along with him. To get rid of your interest in the property, you can sign a quitclaim deed. To get a sample [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/predeal/quitclaim-stateforms.html]quitclaim deed form[/url] for Arizona, you can refer to the following page:

However, this is just a sample deed form and it is always better to have it reviewed by an attorney before you use it.

Thanks Jenkin. There are no lawyers involved though. Truth be told I cannot afford one. If I could I would just be having the lawyer do the whole thing from scratch. I am trying to go it my own. I have read different things about using different forms. Like if you are both on the deed and you are quitclaiming it back to the other you are supposed to use a 2 to 1 form.

Hi Guest,

It is good to use a lawyer to avoid any dispute in future. However, you can do it on your own as well. You can use a 1 to 1 form i.e. form used to transfer from one individual to another also. There you will be the grantor quitclaiming whatever share you have in the property to your co-owner who will be the grantee.

Help! I am trying to get my name off of the mortage of a home I no longer live in and my ex-husband does. He is willing to take over sole responsibility for the home and mortage, but I need to fill out a quit claim. The property is in Vermont and I now live in Tennessee. Can my documents be notarized in TN and still be recognized in VT? I cannot afford a lawyer and my ex is most unhelpful. Can anyone help?

Hi KT,

If the property is located in Vermont, then the quitclaim deed will have to be notarized and recorded at Vermont and not in Tennessee. If you record the deed in Tennessee, it won't be considered as valid in Vermont.

Thanks

Can I still file QuitClaim Deeds on Arizona properties that were executed, signed, and notarized on Dec. 15, 2002 by a State of Ohio notary. Both parties were living in Ohio at the time the papers were prepared. If so, where does one take the QuitClaim Deeds in Phoenix, AZ. to get them filed and what is the cost. Thanks for your prompt reply. I need to get them filed before court hearing this coming Wednesday, March 3rd. Appreciate your help very much.

Hi GP,

The quit claim deed was signed way back in 2002. I doubt whether or not the deed will be considered as valid. You should first speak to a Arizona based real estate attorney in this regard. If the deed is considered as valid, then you will have to record it at the county recorder's office where the property is located.

Thanks

Hi Guest!

Welcome to forums!

As far as I can understand, your girlfriend's name is mentioned in the property deed. You will have to ask your girlfriend to sign a quit claim deed and add your name to the property deed.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

You will have to contact the county recorder's office where the property is located and file the deed there.

Hello, I'm married and i moved out of the house i lived in with my husband in Arizona. We are seperated, and i have no plans at all moving back into the house. I have moved to a different state for now. My husband has told me a few times if anything else goes wrong he's going to walk away from the house. We have our first mortgage, and took out a loan i guess using the house. The newer loan is behind on payments, the first is not. I have gotten phone calls on the second loan from a collection company. I do not want any part of the house can i [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]quit deed[/url] the house back to my husband and how would i do that? My name is on the loan and the mortgage. On doing the quit deed what would this do to my advantage. Thank you

Hi Kathykat!

Welcome to forums!

If you quit claim the property, it will only help you in getting rid of the property. You will still remain liable for the mortgage dues. If the property is foreclosed, it will affect your credit in a negative way. Unless your husband refinances the mortgage in his name, you'll be liable for the loan payments.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

My husband & I are residents in CA, own a vacant lot free and clear in Mohave County AZ. We are divorcing and he is quit claiming the lot to me. Is this something I can do online and in the mail without going to AZ?

Hi Caryl,

I don't think you will be able to do this online. You will have to go to the county recorder's office in order get the deed recorded in your name. Nevertheless, you can still contact a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this regard.

Thanks
