Massachusetts Warranty Deed

									Docstoc Legal Agreements

                             This Warranty Deed is a legal instrument that transfers real property from one party to
                             another and promises that title is good and clear of any claims. A warranty deed provides
                             the most protection to the purchaser because the seller warrants that he or she legally
                             owns the property, and that there are no outstanding liens or encumbrances against it.
                             This type of deed also guarantees title, which means the seller may be held liable for
                             damages if title is found to be defective. This document contains the standard provisions
                             commonly included in a warranty deed and may be customized to fit the specific needs of
                             the contracting parties. This deed should be used by sellers and purchasers of real
                             property located in Massachusetts or their attorneys.
