A General Warranty Deed is a document that is recorded at the county recorder's office and which
conveys title to real estate from the Seller to the Buyer. As compared to a quitclaim deed, it contains
a guarantee from the Seller that the Seller is entitled to sell the property, that there are no
outstanding encumbrances other than those listed on the deed, and that the Seller will defend the
Buyer against any claims brought against the property by individuals claiming to have a prior interest
in it.
