A Warranty Deed is a legal document that transfers the title of real property from one party to another. This type of deed provides a guarantee that the transfer is lawful, and requires the transferring party to defend against any claims of ownership. This type of deed provides the protection to purchasers of real property. This document can be used by individuals or entities that want to transfer the title of real property while providing a guarantee of true and legal ownership.
General Warranty Deed This General Warranty Deed conveys real property from the grantor to the grantee. Under a general warranty, the grantor promises and guarantees the validity of the title of the property. As opposed to a special warranty, a general warranty protects the grantee from problems arising at any point in time, not only during the grantor’s ownership.
