Check your state laws.

BUT USUALLY, any real estate deed must have both the person transferring the property and the person receiving it, and to be recorded, it must be notarized. A quitclaim deed is void upon the grantor's death and if had not been signed by the grantee, becomes just another piece of paper with no value or power.

The reason being, a quitclaim deed only transfers the interest that the grantor has in said property at the date of signing. If the grantee doesn't sign until after the grantor is deceased, the property interest no longer exists.

It won't be valid unless it is signed before the grantee dies!

Sounds like a question for a lawyer.

Might the grantor need to apply for Medicaid some day?
