If a person who is on a deed ""quitclaim"" deeds over their interest to another person, then they legally transfer their interest over to the grantee of the quitclaim deed..
So yes, if someone moved out of a house and still has their name on the deed, then if they sign a quitclaim deed, that would transfer their interest over to whoever the grantee is.
Yes, the actual legal term is "Quit Claim" but many people call it "Quick Claim". But regardless of what people call it, it is an actual deed that essentially says "whatever I own, be it 100% or 0%, I am transferring to the grantee".
Yes, the grantor is the person transferring the property interest and the grantee is the person receiving it. In order for the transfer to be effective, the grantee must voluntarily accept the interest being transferred. You can't force someone to accept an interest in property if they don't want it..
