When it comes to real estate, it always takes more than a shake of the hands and transfer of keys to make an exchange of real property official. You will need Transfer Forms, which are legal documents to make any exchange of property authorized and legal. If you are the title owner of any property you want to hand over, you will have to get one of these forms drafted and signed with the new owner.
There are a lot of legal details involved, as usual, and so to help you save on time and legal drafting expenses, here is a collection of free samples for deed transfer forms you can download right away.

What Are Deed Transfer Forms?
If you are the owner of any real property (land, buildings, vehicles), you will likely already have a title, which is a document of your official ownership. Along with that title, you will also have a deed, which is the document that allows you to transfer the property to a new owner. If you are the full owner, you will usually have both a deed and a title, but these are two very distinct legal concepts.
Any of these Sample Property Transfer Forms will fall under the deed form and will allow you to legally transfer the title of the property; i.e., the ownership.
Just like Stock Transfer Forms, there are forms for transferring property at the occasion of death of the original owner.
- See the Deed Transfer on Death Form for a better idea, as well as the Blank Transfer of Shares Form.
Why Can’t I Just Use a Quitclaim Form?
You can, if you are looking to transfer property quickly. But because quitclaim deed forms offer no warranty and no guarantee either, these are often used between family members and other property transfers between close relations. No money changes hands, although some procedure involving a notary public is involved.
- The Interspousal Grant Deed will seem the most similar to a quitclaim form.

A Note on Using Deed Transfer Forms
Deed Forms are required to be written documents and might also be called the “vehicle of the property interest transfer.” If you have a title, it may either be for full interest or partial interest in the property, and the deed transfer might actually be for transferring less than the full title.
Remember that in most places, the deed must be recorded in the courthouse or assessor’s office before it can be fully and legally binding. A failure to file such a deed transfer does not actually change the transfer of title; it just means the exchange was not perfected. An imperfect deed doesn’t change the title; it is merely an issue with paperwork.
Be judicious on every point and get counsel from an attorney.
