Witnesses required for a quitclaim deed?

I am the owner of a house that I am looking to transfer to another person. I am considering using a quitclaim deed to complete the transfer, but I am unsure if witnesses are required. I understand that witnesses are typically required for legal documents, but I am not sure if this is the case for a quitclaim deed. I need to know if witnesses are required for a quitclaim deed so that I can complete the transfer correctly.

The general rule for a North Carolina quitclaim deed is that it must be properly (1) signed by all grantors, (2) notarized, and (3) recorded. (Grantees are not required to sign.) In a sense, the notary public serves as a "witness," as indicated by the language in a typical notary block. However, no additional witnesses are required. Anyone who has questions about a North Carolina quitclaim deed should consider consulting with a knowledgeable North Carolina attorney.
