Deeds are legal documents used to transfer interest in real property from one person to another. The document must be notarized and may require witnesses. It must also be filed in the office of the local recorder to be valid.
There are many different types of deeds, each of which serve different purposes. They are generally categorized in the following ways:
- Grant Deeds These contain two guarantees: That the asset has not been sold to someone else and that it is not burdened by any encumbrances that have not already been disclosed.
- Warranty Deeds This document provides the greatest amount of protection. It offers the same guarantees as a grant deed, together with a promise that the grantor will warrant and defend the title against claims.
- Quitclaim Deeds Releases a person’s interest in an asset without stating the nature of his or her interest or rights. The grantor could be a legal owner or not and makes no promises. Quitclaims are usually used in divorce situations.
