Hi, when you record any deed, albeit a "Quit Claim" or a "Grant Deed," the County Recorder wants you to complete a "Preliminary Change of Ownership" form (PCOR) to accompany the recorded deed. Simply stated, this allows (helps) the County & City to determine if they're entitled to any transfer taxes if there was indeed a value ($) they can associate with the transfer of title. It's all about the money!
The recorder will record deeds, however without this PCOR, they will mail you one and require that you complete it within 6 months of the recording.
Did you do this???
