Create Your Warranty Deed

Answer a few questions. We'll take care of the rest.

Both types of Warranty Deeds ( Special and General) guarantee the buyer:

  • That the seller owns the title
  • That the seller is legally allowed to sell the property
  • That the property has not already been sold
  • That the property is free of debt or other claims (aside any mentioned in the deed)
  • That the seller is responsible for any problems/faults with the property

However, where the guarantees in a Warranty Deed cover the property's entire history, the Special Warranty Deed only covers the period of time for which the seller owned it. While the seller in a Warranty Deed must defend the title against all other claims and compensate the buyer for any unsettled debts or damages, the seller in a Special Warranty Deed is only responsible for debts and problems accrued or caused during his ownership of the property.

Note: If the Grantor (seller) does not desire to provide any guarantees, consider preparing a Bargain and Sale Deed or a Quitclaim Deed
