Throughout the form, we explain all the terms and you’ll be guided on making the best choices for your general warranty deed.
Reliably transfer ownership of a property with a general warranty deed that contains guarantees as to the seller's rights over the property.
Review and Update
You should be able to obtain the legal description of your property from the County Register or Recorder (often online). The legal description of your property may also be found on your land title, tax assessment information, or in your mortgage agreement.
In order for a contract to be enforceable, each party must give something of value. If the buyer (i.e. the grantee) is receiving a property for free, the deed will say that the seller (i.e. the grantor) received $1.00. In contract law, this is known as giving "nominal consideration."
Distribute and Store Questions
You will be asked whether the buyer or buyers are receiving title as sole owners or co-owners. You should select "Sole owner" only if only one person will have ownership of the property after the deed is signed.
File document / complaint
Although it's not always required, filing your general warranty deed is highly recommended. By recording your completed deed as soon as possible, you gain legal protection from potential adverse claims by other parties.
General warranty deeds are useful for quickly and easily transferring title to real estate to a new owner. As opposed to quit claim deeds, which make no warranties, general warranty deeds make warranties to the buyer as to the status of the property title.
