DP Legal Solution will use this Questionnaire and your answers to prepare the requested legal forms. Please use the information found in this questionnaires and your own knowledge or independent research when deciding how to proceed in your legal matter. If you need additional resources, please feel free to ask our customer service member for help in finding them.
Please complete this workbook carefully and legibly. Please cross out or write “N/A” above any answer that does not apply to your situation. If an answer is left blank, We will assume the intended answer is “none” or “N/A”.
You have requested DP Legal Solutions to assist you in transferring title to real estate. This means that we will prepare a deed for you. The deed will change who owns the real estate described in this workbook. Depending on how you complete this workbook, the deed will possibly take that real estate out of your name so that you are not the owner anymore.
There are two types of deeds in California.
With a Grant Deed, the following promises are implied by law: That prior to the time of the execution of the grant deed, the grantor has not conveyed the real estate to any person other than the grantee, and that the real estate is at the time of the execution of the grant deed free from encumbrances (mortgages, liens, taxes, etc.).
A Quitclaim Deed is often used to clear up problems with a title or when someone wants to use a simple method to give up all interests in a property. With a Quitclaim Deed, the grantor makes no promises of any kind with respect to the title of the property to the grantee.
Grant Deeds are always preferable to Quitclaim Deeds because a Grant Deed comes with the representations and warranties described above. A Quitclaim Deed provides no warranty of any kind. Title insurance companies always prefer Grant Deeds over Quitclaim Deeds.
Completing this workbook will result in a Grant Deed. If you desire a Quitclaim Deed instead, please notify us.
I will provide you all the following services.
Deeds transfer processing: $185.00
NEW LAW: The state of California now assesses a tax of $75 per real estate instrument when the person receiving the property is not an owner-occupier. This tax is in addition to our fee for preparing and recording your deed. If this tax applies to any of your deeds, we will collect it at the time of signing (and not on this website).”
