Hi - thank you for your quick answer. I did realize he didn't have title to the property. I guess I should have written that he didn't want to go through the "default" process. I just wanted to make sure that a Quitclaim Deed would be sufficient. When you say "terminate the Contract For Deed", is that a separate legal form, or does the Quitclaim Deed take care of terminating the contract? The original Contract For Deed was recorded in the County Recorder's Office.
Great - thank you so much!
