Q: Where can I obtain a quick deed to redo paperwork for my house
A: My advice would be for you to contact a real estate attorney in your area. Deeds are legal documents which, if not drafted correctly, can result in problems in the chain of title and can affect your ability to get financing for your property, or your ability to sell or convey the property later. You can find a real estate attorney in your area by searching in the Yellow Pages, or the State Bar of Michigan has a lawyer referral service. Look for an attorney that advertises they practice real estate law.
As always, you get what you pay for. Be sure to talk to a qualified attorney about your specific situation before choosing to rely on any information you get from internet discussion boards, such as this one.

A: I concur don't try to do this without a licensed attorney 'on board'. There are lots of title companies and even real estate agents who will try to sell you 'blank deeds' and tell you 'it is easy to fill in the blanks and avoid the legal expense'. What they don't tell you is that while it will cost $100-250 or so (depending on where you are and what you need done) to have a lawyer prepare a deed for you it will cost at least 10 times that to straighten out problems later.
Don't be penny wise and pound foolish about this. Hire a licensed attorney in your area.
Oh, and by the way, there is no such thing as a 'quick deed', and QUIT CLAIM deeds can have many unintended consequences including some pretty significant tax issues if done wrong. This is a situation where DIY can be dangerous.
