Special Warranty Deed

pecial Warranty Deeds/Grant Deed

Likely to be encountered if the property is being acquired through a tax or foreclosure sale.

Has two warranties 

  1. The first is that the grantor has title to the property. 
  2. The second guarantees that nothing was done to affect the title during the grantor’s ownership, and if a problem existed, the grantor would correct it.

Because of the limited warranties, people acting as third parties sometimes use special warranty deeds.

An estate executor uses a special warranty deed to convey property belonging to an estate or trust.
