Special warranty deeds (known as limited warranty deeds in some states) are useful for transferring title to a buyer in a real estate transaction. As opposed to quit claim deeds, which make no warranties, and general warranty deeds, which make all standard warranties, special warranty deeds make warranties to the buyer as to the status of the title. Basically, the seller, called the grantor in the deed, is promising to the buyer, or grantee, that the seller has proper title to the property and warrants the title against defects in clear title that may have arisen during the grantor's ownership of the property but not against any defects that may have arisen prior to the grantor's ownership.
