Very often the issue of signing a Quitclaim Deed arises during a divorce. 

When one party buys out the other party’s interest in the marital home, the party receiving the buyout must sign a Quitclaim Deed. 

A signature on a Quitclaim Deed indicates a party no longer has an interest in or right to the property.

The issue becomes complicated when the party being bought out does not want to sign the Quitclaim Deed until they receives their money.

It is important to have safeguards in place before you agree to accept a buyout or sign a Quitclaim Deed.
