Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
To get the original purchase price on the home, that would be listed in the property records with the recorder of deeds and it would also be in the tax assessor's office. So you can go to either of those two places to find the original purchase price. Your quit claim is the deed transferring the property to you and you need to file that quit claim with the property clerk as well to record your ownership.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
