Revoking a quitclaim deed: is it possible?

I recently inherited a property from a family member. I recently found out that the property was already transferred to another party via a quitclaim deed. I am wondering if it is possible to revoke this quitclaim deed, and if so, what steps I need to take in order to do so.

I understand you are asking whether someone can revoke a quickclaim deed. What it sounds like you are saying is whether someone can contest a deed transfer to the other party and reverse the transfer. Generally, in the situation your describe and among other possible procedural options, the personal representative of the estate may be able to file a lawsuit or proceeding contesting the deed transfer, canceling the transfer and have the court order the return the property back to the estate for distribution to the heirs.
