A warranty deed is a type of deed where the grantor (seller) guarantees that he or she holds clear title to a piece of real estate and has a right to sell it to the grantee (buyer). This is in contrast to a quitclaim deed, where the seller does not guarantee that he or she holds title to a piece of real estate. A general warranty deed protects the grantee against title defects arising at any point in time, extending back to the property’s origins. Furthermore, warranty deeds state that if a claim or encumbrance does becomes known, the seller will assume all responsibility and financial liability for settling the claim or encumbrance.
