Updated February 01, 2024

An Alabama general warranty deed transfers 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 (seller) is responsible for rectifying the situation.


If the property is the homestead (the person’s primary residence) of the current owner and the owner is married, the spouse must also sign the deed, and the signature must be acknowledged by a notary.[1]

Recording the Deed
