How to get a property deed in 4 steps

Review and Update

1

Find the Property's Legal Description

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.

Decide on a Price

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."

Sign Your Property Deed

In most states, your property deed will be considered effective and executed once it has been both signed by the grantor and also delivered to, and accepted by, the grantee. Some counties require that the grantee sign as well, but most don't.
