Common questions

Can I use your service to transfer property when money is being exchanged?
No. Our deed service can only be used when money is NOT being exchanged. If you're selling a property, we recommend that you contact an attorney, escrow company or title company to complete your transaction.
What's the difference between a quitclaim deed and a warranty deed?
A quitclaim deed transfers whatever interest you have in the property and makes no guarantees. It's often used for adding or removing someone's name on the title, transfers between family members, transfers into a living trust and by divorcing couples.

A warranty deed provides greater protection to the new owner because the current owner makes a promise that he or she legally owns the property and has clear title to the real estate. Warranty deeds are commonly used when selling real estate.
What if I have vacant land I want to transfer?
No problem. If the property is vacant land or if no street address is assigned, then you'll just need to enter as much information as possible about the location of the property (such as mile marker, street intersection, map or lot number, assessor's identification number, etc.) in your questionnaire.

A property deed is required when you want to add or remove a person's name from your property title, transfer property from the old owner (grantor) to a new owner (grantee), place property in a living trust, or transfer property to or from a business entity. There are three types of property deeds, including quitclaim deeds, warranty deeds, and grant deeds. A quitclaim deed transfers ownership rights that the transferring party has on the property to the new owner. A warranty deed is a deed that transfers ownership from one person to another in which the grantor promises that title is good and clear of any claims. A grant deed transfers ownership and promises that the property hasn't already been transferred to someone else. LegalZoom can help you create a property deed online. The process begins by completing a simple questionnaire. The property deed is ready for your review and signature within one week, and we file the deed the proper county office. When you purchase a property deed from LegalZoom, you get research to determine the exact legal description of your property, filing of your real estate deed with the County Recorder's Office, and review by an attorney licensed in jurisdiction of the property, when required.
