Recording a quitclaim deed: how?

I recently inherited a property from my aunt and I am looking to transfer the title to my name. My aunt had created a Quitclaim deed transferring the title to me, but I am unsure of the process to record the deed and make it official. I would like to understand the process of recording a quitclaim deed to ensure that the title to the property is legally transferred to me.

You probably want an attorney to review the deed and make sure it looks ok. You also want an attorney to help you with completing the Preliminary Change of Ownership Form (used by county to determine reassessment of taxes). If all of that looks good, then you want to record the deed with the county recorder. I can review deed and help with Preliminary Change of Ownership Form for $295. Same Day Service.
