Trusted Advice on Preparing and Recording a Real Estate Deed

Whether a real estate transaction involves commercial or residential property, all real estate transactions require a written deed to legally transfer properties from the current to the new owners.

Deeds of sale can become quite complicated. Even simple deeds, if not prepared properly, have the potential to cause issues during the transaction. Our real estate attorneys will conduct a title search and due diligence to verify the deed’s compliance with all legal requirements.

We prepare the following deeds:

General warranty — These deeds offer the most protection to buyers by clearing new owners against prior claims against the property.

Special warranty — These deeds guarantee a lack of issues while the seller occupied the named property; these warranties offer less protection than a general warranty.

Quitclaim — These deeds terminate a person’s interest in the property; they offer no warranty against any defects on the property.
