The Alabama general warranty deed is used to transfer real property, or real estate, to another in the state of Alabama. This type of deed provides a broad warranty or guarantee that the property is being conveyed without any encumbrance not already disclosed and that no one else has any claim to the property. If there is a claim against the property, the grantor is responsible for rectifying the situation. If the grantor is married, the spouse will have to sign the deed as well, either to indicate that he or she is conveying her interest either as a co-owner or as a homestead interest, or stating that he or she has no homestead interest in the property. Once the deed is signed and notarized, it should be given to grantee (person receiving the property), who will then have it recorded.
