Types of Real Estate Forms for Homebuyers 

Before you buy a house or apartment and sign all the papers with the property owner, you need to do your research on the documents that establish the liability of every individual who participates in the transfer of ownership. The templates and forms we offer will guide you through the complex process of becoming a homeowner. 

Property Title Transfer (Deed Forms) 

Here you can find the most common deeds - these Real Estate Forms for Homebuyers are used to transfer the title from the previous owner to the new owner, with or without warranties in relation to the property's condition, indefinitely or for a set period of time. 

  • A Special Warranty Deed confirms the seller is the legal owner of the property and establishes their liability for the issues that arose during their ownership;
  • Bargain and Sale Deed. Often signed in tax sales and foreclosure auctions, this statement transfers the ownership without any guarantees - the beneficiary may inherit liens;
  • Deed of Trust. Use this document if you want to give the third party the right to hold and manage the property - generally, until the purchaser pays the price for it;
  • Warranty Deed. Buy any real estate from the seller who guarantees the property title is not burdened by any liens or encumbrances;
  • A Quitclaim Deed is often used by relatives and friends to transfer property without any warranties;
  • A General Warranty Deed protects the buyer's interests - acknowledge the faults and debts related to the real estate since it was built;
  • Gift Deed. Record the gift by signing this statement if you receive the gift without any compensation or conditions;
  • Survivorship Deed. If one of the co-owners dies, this document will automatically transfer the title on the real estate to the other party;
  • A Life Estate Deed will allow the beneficiary to own real property through the duration of their lifetime;
  • Transfer on Death Deed. Prevent the real estate from the probate process and let the beneficiary inherit the house or apartment without delay.
