What is a Quitclaim Deed?

If you want to transfer a real estate property, or your ownership interest in one, to someone else, you do not need to hire a lawyer.

The best person to prepare quitclaim documents in California is a non-attorney legal document assistant; unlike paralegals, legal document assistants are professionally qualified to work independently of lawyers and law firms.
