As you complete your deed, you will need to be able to provide some basic information about the parties involved and the property for transfer.

Use the information you collected to complete the special warranty deed. We make this easy by guiding you each step of the way and helping you to customize your document to match your specific needs.
Review and Sign
In most states, your special warranty 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.
File document / complaint
It is highly recommended to file your deed with the County Recorder’s Office or County Clerk’s Office. By recording your completed deed as soon as possible, you gain legal protection from potential adverse claims by other parties.
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.
