Joyce Brown, Esq., offers the services of a skilled, knowledgeable real estate attorney who can assist you in transferring your deed properly and legally.
Types of Deeds
The deed on a piece of real estate is the document that shows the ownership of the property. It will show who the buyer and seller, grantee and grantor respectively, of the property are and serves as a legal proof that the sale is complete. Deed transfers fall into two basic categories.
A warranty deed transfers ownership and guarantees that the seller has the title, and therefore the right to transfer the property’s deed. In instances where the seller cannot or does not want to make this promise, a quitclaim deed is used. This transfers ownership interest without promising that the seller has the title and the right to do so. Warranty deeds are commonly used in sales of properties between strangers, while quitclaim deeds are used when title problems exist, such as when property is divided during a divorce or when a property’s title has to transfer between family members or close friends.
