Hi dkline,

Both title deeds and quitclaim deeds are legal documents concerning any transfer or ownership of property. A title deed is a document which contains the proof of a person's legal right to property such as a house or land.

A quitclaim deed is also a legal document which helps in transferring property from one person to another. The person who is transferring the property is known as the grantor and the person who accepts it is the grantee. However, property transfer with quitclaim deed does not offer any warranty on the rights which others may claim from the property.

Thanks

A quitclaim deed releases any claim, real or potential, you have to a real property interest. A title deed transfers title you actually have, and usually warrants the title.

Hi frank!

Welcome to forums!

I don't think that a quitclaim deed could be turned into a title deed. You will have to sign a separate title deed. However, consulting an attorney in this regard would be a good option.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi FRANK,

I do not think you can convert the quitclaim deed into a warranty deed. However, you can transfer the property back to your father and ask him to sign a warranty deed and transfer the property to you again.

Thanks

Can you tell me what the difference is between a tax deed and a warranty deed. Unbeknownst to our family, some property in our family appears to have been sold via a tax deed. The buyer is now requesting that we sign over our claim to the property because he holds the tax deed. However, we did not realize that the warranty deed was in our names. Thanks for your help

Hi Tracy,

I guess your property was sold off for the non-payment of taxes. As a result, that person has the tax deed to your property. A tax deed sale is the forced sale which is organized by a governmental agency, for the nonpayment of taxes for a real estate property.

You'll have to transfer the title of your property to the person who owns the tax deed. You can either do it through a quit claim deed or a warranty deed.

I have a deed to surface property, my neighbor claims he has a title to the mineral rights under my property-his property joins mine and was once part of mine until is was lotted off, he claims he only has surface rights on his property but gained mineral rights to mine through heirship. If so wouldn't he have rights to his properties mineral rights also since they were once the same property.

Hi shirley,

I feel this is a legal issue and it would be better if both you and your neighbor could have a word with a real estate attorney. He will be the right person to help you in this regard.

Thanks

Hi jackie!

Welcome to forums!

As far as I know, you'll have to contact the local Planning and Zoning Commission and request an application for zoning your residential property as a commercial entity.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

I recently purchased a home. My husband co signed for the loan but for personal feelings he does not want to be put on the title or in the survivoship language. Can I use my son in the surviorship language? He is the only one we want to have control of the house if I would pass away. Please advise.
Thank you.

Hi Jeannette!

Welcome to forums!

You can give survivorship rights to your son in case of your property ownership. I don't think you'll have any issues in doing so.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
