What Is a Deed?

A Deed is any written legal instrument that transfers the title (ownership) of the real estate from the seller to the buyer. It serves as evidence that you have the legal right to the real estate after the purchase is finalized.

Alternate Name:

  • Real Estate Deed.

The individual or entity who owns and sells the real estate by conveying the property to another person is called a grantor. The individual or entity receiving the title to the real estate is called a grantee. Take a look at our Deed Form Templates for your various needs during the borrowing process in the real estate business.

Different Types of Deeds in Real Estate

There are several main types of Deeds that transfer the title to real estate:

  1. General Warranty Deeds. A General Warranty Deed is the most common legal instrument used to transfer real estate property making sure it is clear and free of any encumbrances or defects. 
  2. Special Warranty Deeds. A Special Warranty Deed guarantees the title warranty only for the period during which the seller holds the title to the property.
  3. Transfer on Death Deeds (Beneficiary Deeds). A Transfer on Death Deed names the individual or entity that will inherit real estate in its entirety or its share once the current owner passes away.
  4. Bargain and Sale Deeds. A Bargain and Sale Deed simply states that the seller holds the title to the property. 
  5. Quitclaim Deeds. A Quitclaim Deed transfers an interest in real estate property without stating the nature of the seller’s rights or interest and does not give any warranties to the buyer.
  6. Deeds of Trust (Trustee Deeds). A Deed of Trust lets a third person hold real estate as security for a loan between a seller and a buyer until the purchase price is fully paid. 

Additional less common types include Grant DeedsGift DeedsSurvivorship Deeds, and Life Estate Deeds.

However, for it to have legal force, you need to include clear identification of the grantor and the grantee, add a sufficient description of the real estate to be transferred, and have the instrument notarized. The document must be signed by the grantor and legally delivered to and accepted by the grantee.
