Arkansas Special Warranty Deed Form

The Arkansas special warranty deed is a type of deed that only warrants that the seller has not conveyed his or her interest in the property to another, but does not warrant that he or she holds clear title to the property. In other words, it is similar to the quitclaim deed in that seller is selling whatever interest he or she has in the property which could be no interest or total interest, but is guaranteeing that the day before, for instance, they did not transfer that interest (whatever it may be) to another person. As in other cases of conveyance, it is important that a comprehensive title search is completed so that the purchaser understands what he or she is purchasing.
