Hello residents of The Golden State: If you are looking for a California grant deed sample, then you are certainly at the right place. Save time and money with our free fillable grant deed form.
In California, people tend to do things a bit different... One such difference being the popular use of a CA grant deed form to transfer real estate title.
So what's in a grant deed? In plain English, the grantor (that would be the seller if the real estate is being sold) hands over his or her ownership of the property to the grantee. Along with it, the grantor makes 2 guarantees:
1. The property has not already been sold to someone else. (ah sneaky, sneaky)
2. The property is not weighed down by any nasty encumbrances (liens, claims, restrictions, easements or encroachments) during the grantor's period of ownership... except for those that has been disclosed by the grantor.
"Can this California grant deed template double up as a Los Angeles grant deed form as well?"
Short answer: "Yes". Long answer: "Since deed language is governed by California state laws, our standard template can be used for all California counties.
*Make sure this form complies with your local real estate laws before using it. If you have any doubts, you can ask a real estate lawyer online.
