Why? If you did not reaffirm the debt and you do not live at that house then yes. But if you are living at that house then no.

You used the word "should" and you said you received a discharge. If you received a discharge, your case is over. You don't have to do anything, you can if you want to however.

If you already got your discharge in the bankruptcy case then this is not a bankruptcy question. I do not know why you want to quitclaim the property and the details so without additional information it is impossible to respond to your question.

    This is not really a bankruptcy question at this point. If you have a discharge and your case is closed, you are free to do as you wish. The question would be why are you transferring title. That will change your ownership rights to the property.
