Is there any document they need to present when submitting the Quitclaim for transfer tax and recordation?

No there is not. However, I would advise the husband not to sign until at the closing of the refinance and to have the attorney handling the closing draft and record the quitclaim deed at the same time.

Is a TRANSFER TAX required on a quitclaim pursuant to divorce if the mortgage is open at transfer? Maryland
Real Estate Lawyer: lwpat, Attorney replied 6 years ago
My understanding is that there is no transfer tax since the transfer is pursuant to a divorce decree in the division of marital property.
