    A Quitclaim deed conveys whatever interest the owner has in the property. It does not warrant clear title. It sounds like your husband had a one-half legal interest, and your mother in-law had the other half, assuming there are no community property interests to account for. If she signed and conveyed the quitclaim deed, legally she signed the title over to you. I would tread lightly, however, because it is conceivable that she or her descendants would try to make the case that she was not competent at the time she signed the deed. The would try to paint the picture of a elderly person being taken advantage of.
