    Answered . Although I note you are in California, if the law is similar to that in New York, what you are referring to is a "quitclaim deed". You stated that the Deed is recorded so as such, it is now a public record and is readily accessible by anyone as being a "public record". So while his daughter may easily obtain a copy of the recorded Deed directly herself without the need for your intecession, you can, easily enough, provide her with a copy as a courtesy in that you will be providing her with nothing more than she can readily obtain herself from the local Recorder's Office.
