Service Description

In California, the process of filing a quitclaim deed necessitates the payment of county filing fees. Before a property transfer, it is imperative to resolve any outstanding taxes. If there is no monetary exchange involved, a gift tax may come into effect, although exceptions exist for spouses and trusts. Furthermore, a documentary tax is applicable, except in cases where the transfer is due to the grantor’s death. With our vendors, we will research the Chain of Title (up to 24 months) and draft a new deed for transfer according to your order. In California, filing a quitclaim deed involves two types of fees, but not limited to: County Base Filing Fees: These fees start at $10 for the first page and $3 for each additional page. The total cost varies by county. (Cal. Gov. Code § 27361) Building Homes and Jobs Act Recording Fee: This fee is $75 per transaction per real property parcel, capped at $225. (Cal. Gov. Code § 27388.1) So, if multiple parcels are transferred in one quitclaim deed, the maximum fee is $225. But if separate deeds are used to transfer multiple parcels, the fee is $75 multiplied by the number of parcels. We will provide information regarding the recording charges. As stated, the total cost varies depending on the county, typically reaching up to $500. Our flat fee also includes unlimited communication by email, Deed search (up to 24 months), preparation of a new deed, execution with a certified Notary Public, and recording. Fees quoted do not include any court/county clerk filing fees or other costs. We will convene with the involved parties to execute the deed. Following execution, a new deed will be submitted for recording, and a proof of recording receipt will be sent via email.
