Thank you, B.
A quitclaim indeed transfers one's interest from one party to another.
If one had signed the quitclaim deed and given it to another, they arguably transferred their interest in the property to another.
is that you did so willingly and voluntarily. The excuse of "not looking at what was being signed" seldom works in Court.
One would have to show that they did not have the CAPACITY to understand what they were signing (under extreme duress, insane, etc). This is hard to prove.
To challenge the document, one would file a COMPLAINT TO QUIET TITLE in Court to have the Judge decide this. Code Civ. Proc. §760.020
. A sample complaint may be found here
(although it is generic and not based on incapacity as its argument).
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
