My mom attempted to quit claim land and a cabin to us siblings, but the quit claim only mentions the tract of land and not the cabin. It does mention a tax ID number though. Do we really even own the cabin or just the land?
When a person deeds property to another, that generally includes all attached structures and buildings in addition to the land itself. The key designation would be whether the structure was permanent or removable by simple means, such as a camper or travel trailer. Given your facts above, you would own the land and whatever structures are on the land, including the cabin as it is permanent. Be mindful, however, that a quitclaim deed only purports to convey a person's "interest" in the land, and not the land itself, thus not making any guarantees on title for the property. On the other hand, a warranty deed expressly guarantees the grantor's clear title to the property in question, and warrants that the property is free of all claims against it. When in doubt, contact an attorney.
