An Arkansas general warranty deed is a deed that allows a grantor (seller) to transfer his or her real property to a grantee (purchaser) in the State of Arkansas. A general warranty type of deed is a deed whereby the grantor is guaranteeing that he or she has a clear title to the property and is therefore in a position to convey the title to the purchaser and that no other person has a claim or interest in the property. The deed must be acknowledged and notarized by a notary public in Arkansas. Per § 18-12-102 of the Arkansas Code, a warranty deed must contain the words “grant, bargain, and sell” when stating how the property is being transferred.
