Real Estate – Deeds

Quitclaim Deeds, Beneficiary Deeds and Special Warranty Deeds

Starting July 1, 2019, a predictable and flat fee for recording documents in the State of Arizona went into effect pursuant to Arizona Revised Statute §11-475, as amended by the Arizona State Legislature in 2018. The fee to record a document in County Recorder offices throughout Arizona is now $30.00 for each complete document.

Quitclaim Deed is a document that releases or “quits” one’s interest in a piece of real property. This type of deed does not make and specifically disclaims any warranties or representations to the property.

Beneficiary Deed is a document naming a beneficiary of real estate upon the death of its owner. It is recorded in the county where the property is located.

Special Warranty Deed is a deed in which the seller warrants or guarantees the title only against defects arising during the period of his or her tenure or ownership of the property. The grantor makes no warranty against defects existing before the time of his or her ownership.

Quitclaim Deed, Beneficiary Deed and Special Warranty Deed: We prepare your deed, record it with the county recorder and pay the recording fee. Once recorded, we mail the original to you and keep a copy in our cloud storage.

Affidavit Terminating Tenancy: When a person passes away, proper documentation must be recorded to remove the decedent from title, including the recording of a death certificate.

Affidavit of Death: When a Trustee of a Trust has passed away, documentation may need to be recorded to reflect proper ownership.

Deed Correction: In certain situations, a previously deed may need to be modified or corrected to reflect proper ownership.

What is a disclaimer deed?

A disclaimer deed disclaims any interest one may receive in real property. We do not charge for this additional document outside the required recording fee of $30.00.

How do you split or combine a parcel (or parcels) of land post-survey?

After a State Certified Surveyor completes a land survey, conveyance of the property may be required. We can assist in parcel combination or parcel splits, please call for more information.

An Affidavit of Property Value is required for all title transfers and recorded contract of sales unless one of the following conditions is met.
(ARS §11-1134).
