If you do not record the deed, then your claim to the property won't be legalised.
Resolve, once you have signed a quitclaim, the only way to get the property back is to have the grantee quitclaim it back to you or prove the transfer was invalid. If you can prove that you signed the deed under threat, external pressure, or the grantee made you sign by telling you false information, then you can have the quitclaim deed invalidated. For invalidating a deed, consult an attorney in New jersey.
6 Steps to follow in a quit claim deed:
First of all, obtain a quit claim deed form. You can get the form online. You can also obtain it from the office of the local county recorder.
Fill in the names of the grantor and the grantee. If possible address of both the parties has to be filled in.
Signature of the grantor should be there in the form. In some states, signatures of both the grantor and the grantee are required.
A public notary should verify the signature of the grantor. Generally, the grantor has to sign the deed in front of a public notary.
A legal description of the property is a must. This is because of the fact that without the legal description, deed canâ€™t be recorded in the recorderâ€™s office.
In order to make the deed valid, it should be recorded in the recorderâ€™s office.
Good Luck and be careful.
