Asked on Aug 14, 2021

Can a grantor of a filed quit claim deed sell a home without the grantees signature, or consent?

Parent signed quit claim deed over to son and it has been filed. Parent is now threatening to sell property and not give any proceeds to son who is grantee on quit claim deed. Is this even possible, legally?

The quick answer is likely no. If someone has executed and filed a quitclaim deed, they have no interest left to sell. Any buyer is going to review title to the property and not accept deed from the parent.
