Alabama Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated February 01, 2024

An Alabama special warranty deed is a legal document that transfers ownership of a property from the seller to the buyer, guaranteeing that the seller will compensate the buyer if any claims emerge against the title. If the seller is married, the spouse should also sign his or her interest in the property. Such interest may be tenants by the entirety, joint owners, or such spouse may have a homestead interest. If there is no interest held by the spouse, that must also be indicated on the deed.
