A deed is the instrument that transfers ownership of real property from one owner to another. It contains the names of the current owner (the grantor) and the new owner (the grantee), the legal description of the property, and is signed by the grantor. Typically, all deeds (including quitclaims) must be in writing and notarized. Deeds should, but need not, be recorded in the county where the property is located.
