Looking for sample property deeds? No matter what types of deeds you need, you will find it here from our complete collection of free property deed forms.
In the simplest of terms, a deed is simply a legal document that transfers the ownership of real estate. Whenever a property changes hands, it has to be done in writing and that writing is a real estate deed.
Regardless of your reason and method for transferring real estate, we will have a deed below that matches your needs. In addition to providing all major types of property deeds here, we have also tagged each one with a plain English explanation to help you make the right choice.
General Warranty Deed
Do you want to get your hands on a good and clear property title? Then make use of our general warranty deed for a total and worry-free transfer of ownership. Since these property deeds offers the best protection to the grantee, we highly recommend it to buyers.
Special Warranty Deed
A special warranty deed is similar to its general warranty cousin above with one critical difference - The grantor (seller) is only responsible for property title problems during his or her ownership.
If you just so happen to hail from California, it's helpful to know that special warranty deeds aren't all that popular in the Golden State. Instead they prefer to work with a California Grant Deed that performs just about the same magic.
