When you need to transfer real estate.

General Warranty Deed: A legal document used to transfer real estate with the highest level of protection, including Seisin, Right to Convey, Encumbrances, Quiet Enjoyment and Warranty Forever warranties. In Texas, ensures buyer receives clear and marketable title to the property.

Special Warranty Deed: A legal document used to provide a limited warranty of title from seller to buyer, only guaranteeing seller has not caused any title defects or claims during their period of ownership. Commonly used in commercial real estate transactions but does not provide the same comprehensive guarantee as general warranty deeds. Buyers should conduct due diligence and title searches before relying solely on special warranty deed.

We can also record the deed after execution for an additional fee.
