What Does a Property Deed Do?

Quit claim deeds are used to quickly change ownership on a property title and are commonly used between family members and to transfer property into a trust. Because they do not provide guarantees against title defects, they are usually the quickest and easiest solution for naming new property owners.

General warranty deeds guarantee that the property title is free and clear of any liens and other defects (unless stated in the deed) and that the grantor owns proper title to the property. These guarantees make general warranty deeds ideal for property sales.

A special warranty deed (or "limited warranty deed" in some states) is similar to a general warranty deed, except that there are no guarantees against any liens and defects that may have occurred prior to the grantor becoming an owner.
