A warranty deed is the type of deed where the seller will guarantee clear title to a piece of real estate and has the right to sell it to the buyer.
Special warranty deed
Doesn’t protect as much as General Warranty Deed, the grantor of this deed conveys the property with 2 warranties:
- The grantor warrants that they have received title.
- The grantor warrants, unless noted specifically in the deed, that the property did not have any encumbrances during the period they owned the property.
There are no warranties prior to their taking title. If specifically stated in the deed, other warranties can be conveyed.
Quit claim deed
A quitclaim did does not have any warranties that the title is clear, research prior to purchasing is highly advised.
