  • quitclaim deed Washington

    In June of 2006 my parents signed a quitclaim deed from themselves to me for a small parcel of land with a small garage/shop. This was in Stevens County, Washington State. It was not notarized but was signed by two witnesses. My father has since passed away and I was wondering if the deed was "legal" since it did not get notarized. In researching current law I see that these deeds need to be notarized but was wondering if that was the case back in 2006?

    Yes, even in 2006 a quitclaim deed to be valid in Washington, it should have been signed & sealed by a notary public. However, you can run it by an attorney (maybe a real estate attorney) to see if there is any possibility that it "might" still be considered valid.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
