Louisiana Quit Claim Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

A Louisiana quitclaim deed is used to transfer real estate in Louisiana from one person to another. A quitclaim has no guarantee or warranty attached to it. So the buyer, or vendee, is buying only that interest that the vendor owns in the property. If he or she doesn’t own the property or there are other interests in the property, it is not the obligation of the vendor to rectify the situation – it falls on the vendee. In order to ascertain what interest a vendee is buying, the vendee should conduct a thorough property search before purchasing by going to the clerk of courts office and asking for the land records office.
