Deeds are frequently used in estate planning to transfer title on real estate. This often takes the form of a grant deed or quitclaim deed. One example would be a husband and wife who hold title to a home as “husband and wife as joint tenants” who then grant deed the property to themselves as “John Doe and Jane Doe, Trustees of the Doe Family Trust.” Deeds should always be signed and witness by a notary public. Once signed it should then be recorded with recorder’s office in the county where the real property is located. This maintains a clean chain of title.
