- A quitclaim agreement between Joseph Thomas and William Duncan dated the 17th of July 1850. The document describes the land transfer of a portion of Original Road leading through the township of Brantford and located “along and opposite the front of South End of the East half of Lot letter E in the Fourth Concession of the said Township of Brantford” for the sum of 18 pounds 15 shillings.
Unlike most property deeds, a quitclaim deed contains no title covenant and offers the grantee no warranty as to the status of the property title. Thus, the grantee is entitled only to whatever interest the grantor actually possesses at the time the transfer occurs. Because of the lack of warranty, quitclaim deeds are most often used to transfer property between friends or family members.
