  • Do I need to file an affidavit with a quit claim deed if no money exchanged hands

    I am ready to submit all my paper work for filing a quit claim deed. Is it a legal requirement to file an affidavit with a quit claim deed if it was a gift with no money exchanged between the parties?

    I'm not sure whether I understand the question. If you're asking whether the county recorder will accept a deed for recording without an acknowledgment signed by a notary public, the answer to that question is that the county recorder won't accept the deed for recording without the acknowledgment. The only other method of getting it recorded is to open a lawsuit and obtain a court order authorizing the recording.
