"A quit claim deed is a type of deed where a grantor, a person who owns an interest in a property, transfers all his interests to someone else.

The grantor offers no guarantees about the title to the recipient, who is called the grantee.

A quit claim deed is often used to clear up problems with a title or when someone wants to use a simple method to give up all interests in a property."
