Almost certainly. Your local registrar of deeds will have the rules for what must be included in a proper deed (description, location, names of grantors, grantees, source of title to grantors, notarized signatures of grantors, statement of consideration paid, etc).

Generally, a notarized letter cannot, in and of itself, be proof of purchase of a home. A deed is the legal form that must be used to convey title to property.

Does a deed of trust have to be notarized?

Is a notarized documents legal in a court of law and if not what is the point of notarizing it?

A notarized document would be considered as appropriate evidence as to the signature on the document. A notary can only verify what is 'sworn to' in front of them. You obviously have something in mind and should add more details to your query. A notarized document can be used as evidence in court. However, whether it is enforceable depends on the document and what you need it to prove. If two people have a dispute regarding who owns real estate and one has an un-notarized deed and the other has a notarized deed, the one with the fully executed deed will likely win. If a Will was not notarized and state laws require a that a will be notarized, the Will, even if written by the decedent, may be vulnerable to challenges because of the missing notary. If it was notarized and has no technical errors it would be allowed automatically. As in every profession, there are unscrupulous notaries who notarize documents that are obviously forged or fraudulent. Although 'notarized' the court has the power to reject them. That's what courts are for. A notary's acknowledgement does not automatically give credence to just any document.

How do you fill out a quick claim deed?

First of all, although it is often times called a "quick claim deed", it is actually called a "quit-claim deed".

A quit-claim deed, therefore, can be a risky way of purchasing property when compared to using title insurance.From there, the process depends on state law. The Grantor is the person who is quitting their claim, the Grantee is the one who is receiving the claim.
