When to Use

  • You are selling or transferring real estate and providing the standard title warranties.
  • You need a deed tailored for your state.
  • The parties—called the grantor and grantee—are either individuals, businesses, or trustees.

What Is a General Warranty Deed?

A general warranty deed is the go-to deed to use for selling a property because it includes standard promises that buyers expect. Basically, the deed provides guarantees to the new owner that the grantor has a valid legal title to the property and that the title is free and clear of any liens or other defects (unless explicitly listed in the deed).

Use a quit claim deed to quickly sell or transfer property without warranties. This deed is commonly used to add new owners to the title, transfer property to family, or remove a “cloud” on the title.
