Answer

A quitclaim deed transfers or "quits" any interest in real property. The grantor may not be in title at all, so the grantee cannot assume that the grantor has any real interest to convey. However, if the grantor were, say, married to the owner of the property, signing and recording a quitclaim deed in favor of the spouse would transfer any interest the grantor may have in the property to the spouse. 

To obtain a quitclaim deed form, go to the Legal Forms Library, an online resource that is available to Richland Library cardholders.  (If you are accessing it from outside the library, you will be prompted to log in with your library card number and PIN.)  Type quitclaim in the search box on the left and you will see a variety of quitclaim deed forms from which to choose.
