Legally transfer property in Illinois with this simple form

Using a quitclaim deed is a common and simple way to transfer property.  It conveys whatever interest you have in a piece of property without making any promises about the type of interest you’re conveying.

You can use Nolo’s Illinois Quitclaim Deed to do the following and more:

  • transfer property to or from a revocable living trust
  • transfer property to one spouse as part of a divorce
  • clarify an ambiguity about inherited property-- for example, by giving up potential rights to inherited real estate
  • settle uncertainties about other kinds of claims -- for example, by relinquishing the rights to an easement
  • transfer one co-owner’s interest to another co-owner  -- for example, when one co-owner buys out another
  • transfer part of your interest to a new co-owner -- for example, by transferring property you own by yourself into shared ownership with someone else
  • change the way owners hold title to the property -- for example, by transferring title from joint tenants to tenants in common, or the other way around.

Nolo's Illinois Quitclaim Deed includes up-to-date instructions for preparing a quitclaim deed, getting it notarized, and recording (filing) it with the county recorder. You'll learn how to:
