Legal Question in Real Estate Law in Virginia

What is a Deed of Gift

I was told I had to sign a document called a ''Deed Of Gift'' to sign off on inherited property to be sold. I am a disabled Veteran on a fixed income, and the term ''Gift''made me nervous. Would someone please explain the meaning of a Gift Deed, as it applies in the state of Virginia.

Thank you

Re: What is a Deed of Gift

It means what it says - that you are giving it away without any compensation or consideration in return.

Re: What is a Deed of Gift

A deed of gift is a transfer of a property interest that you own for no consideration, money or otherwise. In other words someone is asking that you give up your interest in real property for free. Not a wise thing to do.
