Quit Claim. Does anyone have a link to the procedure for removing one's name from a deed here? I'm looking through the charmeck and registrar's websites but can't find any info.

Thanks

I have filed a quit claim deed in the past, but not in this county. It was very simple. I just used a form, had it notarized, took it to the Register of Deeds and they recorded it. I think the fee was maybe $25. That was about 20 years ago but I doubt the process has changed much.

Thanks Ani,

I may have to walk in and pick them what I need. Charlotte makes great use of the net for some info, but their search mechanism sucks. ;p

I wondered if I were the only one who got frustrated w/ that website. They have some good stuff on it - but it is not user friendly for archival info (IMHO).

You might try calling and see what they advise (if you can get thru/ on the phone, LOL!!!)

Can I use this technique (quit claim) to get rid of a timeshare? Can't sell the thing (property is not well maintained), can't even donate the thing (charities wouldn't accept it even when fees were up to date... fees are now several years delinquent). It's like a negative annuity that I can't get rid of!

Too bad it isn't that simple . . . Whoever dreamed up time shares should be shot.

I have several friends who were so thrilled with the "great deals" w/ their time shares a few years back . . . and now that they see the total worthlessness of them. . . they can't unload them - even at a huge loss.

no, not unless someone else's name is on the deed. ;-) and you are not on the mortgage.

FWIW: There is a special section in the real estate part of Ebay that deals with timeshares. There are a number of companies that SELL timeshares very cheaply. So, if they sell cheap, maytbe they BUY cheap and you can dump your cheap timeshare to them?

Like Ani said you need someone to quit your claim to. Do you like your mother-in-law?
Perhaps she would like your gift and you take the tax write-off??? Now, if you really like her...don't do that.

Baybook: once you get the process finished, would you mind sharing the process so we will have it recorded on this thread in case someone does a search on "quit claims" in the future? I wonder if it turned out to be as simple as it was for me in the past. Also - wonder if they have standard forms at the Registrar's Office, etc.
