A quitclaim deed is one in which the grantor makes no warranty as to the validity of their title being transferred. It conveys whatever title, if any, the grantor has.

If the property is conveyed by quitclaim any mortgage remains on the property. If the property was the subject of a conveyance before the death of the grantor then it would not be part of the probate estate of that grantor.
