HOW DO I FILE A QUIT CLAIM

DEED IN NEW YORK?

If you live in New York and are trying to transfer real estate property from one person to another as a gift or through a court order, then a quit claim deed could be the best way to do it.

A quit claim deed is a relatively easy method of transferring title of property and is most commonly used when a property is transferred without a traditional sale. Here’s what to know about filing it in New York, plus a quick look at how the attorneys at Moshes Law, P.C. can help guide you through the process.

WHEN TO USE A QUIT CLAIM DEED: DO YOU QUALIFY?

Transferring title through a quit claim deed conveys legal property ownership
from one party (the grantor) to the other (the grantee), usually in the case of a
trust, a divorce, or as a gift. Due to the logistics of this type of transfer, it’s vital
to work with an attorney who understands the complexities of how deeds are
processed, held, and conveyed.

To properly execute a property transfer in New York, you’ll need to meet specific eligibility criteria:

Also essential is that the grantor has a legitime ownership interest in the property before transferring the title, even if that ownership is only partial.

TAX AFTER COMPLETING A QUIT CLAIM DEED IN NEW YORK.

The cost of submitting a New York state document that transfers property rights varies across counties. For residential or farm properties, the standard filing fee as of 2018 is $125, while for other property types, it’s $250. These fees apply specifically to the statewide RP-5217 form.

In addition, there are additional fees tacked on at the time of filing. These include nominal fees for other papers filed, such as fees for Form TP-584. Additionally, there is a general recording fee, and each page filed has an additional nominal cost.

    Hired Yuri to help me through coop purchase process. Yuriy and his staff answered all my questions promptly, I've had attorneys in the past that once paid would take their time and de prioritize your mails, etc..Not the case here. My initial purchase wound up folding week before scheduled closing date due to seller negligence. Almost a year later, I received same level of effort from Yuriy second time around, closed, and am very happy with professionalism and expertise provided.
