What is a special warranty deed?

Question:

Hi,

I hope you are well. I already purchase a title search using your service. I have a couple of question for you. Could you please tell me more about the title, deed and if the property has any debt that has to be paid? What does Special Warranty Deed stand for?

Regards,

Wilfredo

 

Answer:

Dear Wilfred,

In a special warranty deed, the seller guarantees clear title only during their period of ownership and not against any title issues that occurred or existed before the seller owned the property.

Please forward the report you purchased so that I may review it and answer your questions.

Thank you,

Jeannie B.
