[_] The Grantor should date and sign the General Warranty Deed before a Notary and two
witnesses. Among other things, Notarization will allow the General Warranty Deed to be
recorded as a public record. Without filing, the General Warranty Deed may not be effective
against third parties. Although witnesses are not required in all states, it is generally a good idea
to use them.

[_] Documents referencing land or other property should include a legal description of the land.
Verify that the legal description is correct. If the space in the document is not enough for the
legal description, you may write “SEE EXHIBIT A” in the space and attach a page titled
“EXHIBIT A”, to the Deed, containing the legal description of the property

[_] A General Warranty Deed may require other documents to be filed with it. Please check your
local requirements with your local Recorder’s (or similar) office.

[_] Depending on the type of document, additional requirements may apply. Nonconforming
documents may be returned unrecorded or may be charged additional fees

This General Warranty Deed form is used to convey an interest in real estate. The General
Warranty Deed guarantees that the title conveyed is good and its transfer rightful. A General
Warranty Deed includes a promise by the person making it (i.e. the Grantor / Seller) that he/she
will defend the Grantee (the person getting the property) from any and all claims of others.

A General Warranty Deed is used in most real estate deed transfers and offers the greatest
protection of any deed.

If you are a buyer taking a General Warranty Deed, make sure that it satisfies your needs.
Consult a real estate attorney and title insurance company to protect your interests.
