Docstoc Legal Agreements
This Warranty Deed is used when a seller of real property located in Texas conveys
ownership of the property to a buyer and warrants title, but reserves a lien in favor of the
seller until the purchase price is paid off. This warranty deed effectively transfers the
property to the buyer, but gives the seller the right to take the property back if he or she is
not paid in full. In this warranty deed the seller promises to defend the buyer from all
adverse claims relating to the property, but states that the vendor lien is retained against
the property until it is paid off. This document should be used in a real estate transaction
where the seller warrants the property, but retains a vendor's lien to ensure full payment.
