No they both do not convey title. The Q/C only conveys the grantor’s interest and does not even guarantee that they have an interest. It is not accepted as passing Title in TX.

I have a townhouse that I need to get rid of. It’s appraised at about what I owe on it. If I quitclaim it to a potential buyer, will this save me in cost? I just want to get rid of it. Any advice?? Suggestions??

What state are you in? All quitclaim says is that you turn over your interest. It does not say that yours is the only interest. The Warranty Deed does represent a complete transfer of ownership. The buyer, if they are smart, will want Title Insurance on anything with a quitclaim in the chain of Title.

both convey title. if you’re a seller, use the quit claim method or a limited warranty. Otherwise if there is a goof in the chain of title, youâ??re no longer on the hook like you are with a warranty deed.
