A deed transfers ownership of a home, a business, or another property from one party to another. Even though drafting a deed is routine in the selling and purchasing of real estate, the laws around transfer of title can be complex. Working with an experienced deed drafting attorney who understands the intricacies of real estate transactions will ensure that your document is done accurately and includes all legally required elements.
The Different Types of Deeds
Each type of deed offers specific benefits.
- General warranty deed – used in real estate purchases to show the buyer that the title is good
- Special warranty deed – used in real estate purchases as a way for the seller to warrant that the property was clear of title or claim issues
- Personal representative’s deed – transfers title from a deceased owner to their personal representative who is responsible for settling the estate
- Quitclaim deed – transfers ownership of the real property with no warranty that the title is good
Quitclaim deeds are ideal for use between trusted family members or people with established relationships to either transfer property to another member or to add an additional person to the deed. One disadvantage of a quit claim deed is that it can limit the buyer’s ability to obtain financing or title insurance.
