Warranty Deed

What is Warranty Deed?

A warranty deed is a document often used in real estate that provides the greatest amount of protection to the purchaser of a property. It pledges or warrants that the owner owns the property free and clear of any outstanding liens, mortgages, or other encumbrances against it. The two parties involved in a warranty deed are the seller or owner, also known as the grantor, and the buyer or the grantee. Either party can be an individual or a business, and are often strangers to each other. There are different types of deeds such as the warranty deed, special warranty deed, and the quitclaim deed. The difference between these deeds is usually defined by what warranties and covenants are being conveyed from the seller to the buyer.
