Does a person need to be informed they are signing a quitclaim deed for it to be valid. For instance, If my grandmother had her daughter sign several quitclaim deeds with the daughter as grantee, but did not inform her daughter that she was signing quitclaim deeds also as a grantor with a 3rd person, who was never mentioned, as grantee. Is a quitclaim valid if a person signs, or only if they actually consented.

Welcome. This site allows for a general response that will help you with your legal issue. If necessary, for specific advice contact a local attorney. I am happy to help. If you need clarification, hit reply and ask a follow up question prior to providing a rating. A person should always review documents prior to signing them. However, if a person signs documents, such as a deed, based on misinformation or worse false pretenses, provided to the person signing the document, the person signing the documents may have a claim for fraudulent inducement and potentially rescinde the contract. If you need further clarification, hit reply and let me know. Otherwise, please provide a positive rating so I receive credit for helping you. Thank you.
