Q: I have a quit claim deed that needs to be reviewed. I want to know how much of the land is given to each party?
Does Betty Rainwater retain any of the land?
Does Susan Rainwater get one half of the land?
A: Generally, a quitclaim deed conveys all of the interest of the grantor at the time of the conveyance. However, it all depends upon the actual terms of the deed. You will have to have the deed reviewed by an attorney.
A: You will have to hire a competent OK attorney to examine the instrument and give you his opinion of Title. A Title Search may be in order. Without knowing the granting language, derivation of title clause, the habendum clause, and possibly the legal description, your questions cannot be answered.
